Kim’s Identity Confirmed Using Son’s DNA

Malaysia found out the identity of Kim Jong-nam’s body based on DNA sample taken from his son, the deputy prime minister said on Wednesday. Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was murdered on February 13, when Malaysian police say two women smeared super toxic VX nerve agent on his face at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Reuters reported. But North Korea has so far not identified him as Kim Jong-nam who was carrying a passport under the name of Kim Chol when he was murdered. No next of kin has come forward to claim the body. “I again confirm that it is Kim Jong-nam... This is based on a sample taken from his son,” Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told reporters.
