Nerve agent found on Kim Jong-nam murder suspects, Malaysian court told

In the fourth day of the murder trial of Doan Thi Huong and Siti Aisyah, Dr. Raja Subramanian told the court that both Doan and Siti's clothing had, at the time of the attack on Kim Jong Nam, exhibited parent components of VX.

Raja Subramaniam, who heads the government's Center of Chemical Weapon Analysis, said he found VX in its pure form and VX precursors on Huong's white jumper and found a degraded product of VX on Huong's fingernails.

Doan, a Vietnamese national, and Siti, an Indonesian national, pleaded not guilty to murdering Kim on Monday, in proceedings which have seen their defense claim that the two were participating in what they believed was a TV prank show.

The Malaysian police did not officially confirm until March that the deceased was Kim Jong Nam, as Pyongyang had insisted the dead man was Kim Chol, the name that appeared in the North Korean passport found with the body.

Other suspects could have poisoned the half-brother of North Korea's leader besides the two women on trial for his audacious assassination in Malaysia, an expert witness said on Wednesday (Oct 4).

Lee said, though, Kim's concerns are closer to home, where his regime was blamed for the murder of his half-brother Kim Jong Nam earlier this year, AFP said.

In his post-mortem report, Shah concluded that Kim died of VX nerve agent poisoning.

Raja said VX will degrade when it reacts with water, leaving detectable byproducts, and a person can fully decontaminate their hands by washing and scrubbing.

Dr Mohd Shah said he was informed by a consultant forensic pathologist from HKL, Dr Norliza Abdullah, that the victim showed symptoms such as watery eyes, liquid in the mouth and breathing pipes, drooling, unconsciousness and seizure before his death.

The FCC's daily status report also shows significant wireline, TV and radio outages remain in both USA territories. Now around 10 percent of residents on the island have power. "People know right away".

"We need the devices to detect VX nerve agent", he said, when Wan Shaharudin asked if airports in Malaysia had the devices to detect VX nerve agent.

But experts had been confounded by how the women allegedly carried out the hit using a chemical so deadly it is a listed as a weapon of mass destruction without causing any harm to themselves.

Trump and Kim have been involved in a war of words that escalated last month with Trump's statement to the United Nations, saying that the US would "totally destroy" the reclusive country if provoked.

Donald Trump has continued to respond to North Korean threats on Twitter, most recently referring to Kim Jong Un as "Little Rocket Man" and urging Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to avoid negotiations with him.

The Associated Press reported that this testimony was the first evidence that has connected VX to either of the two murder suspects.

It's become quite common for defence analysts and military officers to dismiss North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as insane. The order came after Raja told the court the VX might still be active and it would be safer to view samples in the lab.

Prosecutors told the court the actions of Siti Aisyah and Doan showed they both meant to cause Jong Nam's death.

The Kremlin is strongly opposed to what it considers meddling in other countries' affairs, Russian diplomats told Reuters. He also said the autopsy found no sign Kim had a heart attack.
