VX found on women accused of Kim Jong-Nam murder

Two suspects in Kim Jong Nam murder case

Testifying during the trial into the murder of Kim Jong-nam in Malaysia, a chemist has said he found traces of VX nerve agent on the clothes of Doan Thi Huong, from Vietnam, and Indonesian Siti Aisyah. The pathologist, Nur Ashikin Othman, said Kim had a level of 344 units per litre, far below the usual level for men.

He said Kim had extremely high blood pressure and rapid pulse and started to display seizure symptoms, with his jaw and teeth clenched and eyes rolling upward.

However, Dr Raja warned that viewing the shirt in an open space was risky as the VX nerve agent's presence might be still active.

Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, Huong's lawyer, said the defense has another explanation of why VX was present on the Vietnamese and would reveal this later.

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.

"The presence of VX precursors and VX degradation products confirms the presence of VX itself", he told the court.

Kim died within minutes of being attacked and the two women, who face the death penalty if convicted, were arrested a few days after the sensational assassination that sparked a diplomatic row between Malaysia and North Korea.

Describing meetings with North Korean officials, Morozov said they "displayed serious determination and bellicose rhetoric", RIA reported.

The women pleaded not guilty to murder charges on Monday.

"(The North Koreans) know exactly how the situation developed in Iraq", Putin told the economic forum, saying Washington had used the false pretext that Baghdad had weapons of mass destruction to destroy the country and its leadership.

Apple Unveils New Emoji Coming to iOS 11.1
Because Apple is rolling out "hundreds" of new ones when it releases iOS 11 .1. Apple announced it had accepted the design earlier this summer.

Gooi Soon Seng, defence lawyer for Aisyah, had disputed the VX findings on Wednesday, before the chemist testified a byproduct was found on his client's shirt.

The lethality of VX depended on the dosage and where on the body it was applied, he added.

"What if a drop of VX came to contact with human skin?"

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. Part of the expunged section says that two females wiped Kim's face with a "dangerous fluid" at the airport.

To which Kim responded: "Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason".

Unlike #Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un appears more rational in running the affairs of his regime.

Wan Shaharuddin: Can you tell us what nerve agents are there in the world?

Russian Federation is quietly boosting economic support for North Korea to try to stymie any US-led push to oust Kim Jong-un as Moscow fears his fall would sap its regional clout and allow United States troops to deploy on Russia's eastern border.

According to an Associated Press investigation, North Korea workers, who are outsourced by dictator Kim Jong Un's regime to work in Chinese factories, help process seafood that ends up in USA stores, including Walmart and ALDI.
