    Default Kim Jong-nam killing: 'VX nerve agent' found on his face

    Well that's a development. Imagine walking around an airport with VX in your pocket. The assassins even rushed to the loo to wash their hands afterwards, even still they were vomiting, so it is reported.

    Given the minute quantities required, NK could distribute the stuff anywhere it liked. So easy to conceal.

    Rupert Wingfield Hayes: Three reasons why the use of VX is so extraordinary
    Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, was killed by a highly toxic nerve agent, says Malaysia.

    Mr Kim died last week after two women accosted him briefly in a check-in hall at a Kuala Lumpur airport.

    Malaysian toxicology reports indicate he was attacked using VX nerve agent, which is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.

    There is widespread suspicion that North Korea was responsible for the attack, which it fiercely denies.

    It responded furiously to Malaysia's insistence on conducting a post-mortem examination and has accused Malaysia of having "sinister" purposes.

    What does the toxicology report say?

    Malaysia's police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said on Friday that the presence of the nerve agent had been detected in swabs taken from Mr Kim's eyes and face.

    One of the women Mr Kim interacted with at the airport on 13 February had also fallen ill with vomiting afterwards, he added.

    The authorities say they intend to decontaminate the airport and areas the suspects are known to have visited. VX is a v-type nerve agent, which means the substance can remain lethal for long period of time.

    Mr Khalid said other exhibits were still under analysis and that police were investigating how the banned substance might have entered Malaysia.

    "If the amount of the chemical brought in was small, it would be difficult for us to detect," he said.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Had a quick read about this earlier. Sound like they (NK) only have a few thousand tons of the stuff so no need to panic. Russia and the US have a considerable amount too. Doomed!

    Pisses me off that we invented VX in Britain but again all the assassinations are being done by foreign agents. We should have an assassination school promoting products that we invented.

    Yet again offshoring is decimating the British assassination industry...
