Toxicology reports coming from Malaysia indicated that he was attacked with a VX nerve agent, this is now classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.

" VX is known to be much more potent than other nerve agent because of its persistency".

The country says it wants to meet suspects, hear their statements, asked who ordered them, and survey footage from the place where Mr Kim fell ill.

Police said they believe the women were paid to carry out the attack and had practiced their methods in advance.

On what seemed to be the first reference of the case by the North's state media, Pyongyang said on Thursday that Malaysia was responsible for the death of one of its citizens.

North Korea and Malaysia are already entangled in a dispute regarding Kim's autopsy, after Kuala Lumpur refused to repatriate Kim to Pyongyang without a family DNA sample. It's not a naturally occurring chemical and was labeled chemical weapon and banned at the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1993.

The Malaysian police have arrested a Vietnamese woman and an Indonesian woman suspected of smearing the chemical on his face. "She was very aware that it was toxic and that she needed to wash her hands".
