Nerve agent classed as 'weapon of mass destruction' killed Kim

Kim Jong-Nam was murdered using a highly toxic chemical known as VX nerve agent, a preliminary report suggests.

The poison, which is classed as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations, was detected on swabs taken from his eye and face.

Mr Kim, who is the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, was attacked by two women at an airport in Kuala Lumpur on 13 February.

The suspects appeared to put a substance on his face while he checked in for a flight - and although Mr Kim sought help from airport staff shortly afterwards, he died on the way to hospital.

VX nerve agent is tasteless and odourless, and it is outlawed under the Chemical Weapons Convention except for "research, medical or pharmaceutical purposes".

It can be made as a liquid, cream or an aerosol - and if it is consumed in large doses, it can kill someone within 15 minutes.

Investigators have previously said the two female suspects were trained to wash their hands immediately after the attack.

Toxicologists have been left stumped as to how the attackers managed to apply a poison and kill Mr Kim so quickly without becoming ill themselves.

But it has now emerged that one of the women also suffered effects, and was vomiting after the attack.

    And added to this - there isn't a single photography anywhere of him actually dead or sick on a stretcher. The closest we got was seeing medical people gathered around a stretcher inside of a medical office that's blocked from view. Is this dude still alive?

    How Did Kim's Killers Survive Nerve Agent Attack?
    They shouldn't have been able to handle VX and live: experts

    (Newser) – The banned chemical weapon VX is considered by some experts to be the nastiest of the nasty nerve agents known to exist. With a consistency similar to motor oil, it lingers for long periods in the environment and even a tiny amount causes victims' bodies to flood with fluids, producing a feeling of drowning before death, reports the AP. So when Malaysian authorities announced Friday that VX was to blame for the Feb. 13 death of the North Korean leader's exiled half-brother inside a busy Kuala Lumpur airport, it raised nearly as many questions as answers, including how the two women who allegedly attacked Kim Jong Nam with it could have survived. A toxicologist says the woman shouldn't have escaped unscathed—one reportedly vomited—as police have said they did not wear gloves or protective gear and only washed their hands after the attack.

    One theory is that they took an antidote in advance. And the New York Times points out VX becomes lethal when two chemicals are mixed, something that can be done "at the last moment." Police have said the two suspects rubbed something on Kim's face in quick succession. Another toxicologist notes that VX—a small amount of which could kill 500 people through skin exposure—would likely have come from a chemical weapons laboratory, making it more likely that the attack was executed by a government. But he wants an independent lab to verify that VX was used, given that no one else at the airport was sickened. On Friday officials announced the facility would be decontaminated.

  • Of course we'll never know which country's operative actually arranged the assassination.

    Someone went to a lot of trouble if he indeed was assassinated.  The question is "Why?"
    There really is no "why", which is why this whole story stinks. This happened during a major NK holiday while they were testing an ICBM - basically the worst possible time for them to do something like this, in the open, in a public airport, with 12523523 cameras watching.

    And Malaysia won't let NK near the "body", and is giving lots of shady information to boot. If I were to say "why", I would say it's to get NK to react in some manner that can be used an excuse to begin attacking.

  • Kim Jong-Un and Kim Jong-Nam may have been half-brothers but I doubt they were besties.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

  • Might suit someone to make it look as though he did the deed.  From the photos I saw of the deceased under "images" he appeared to be enjoying life in South East Asia as an expat.  If that was the case he wouldn't be a serious threat.  Funny how the name Malaysia keeps cropping up in these major mysteries.

    I've noticed that as well. I wonder why Malaysia is such a hot spot?
