Teams seal off scene of Kim killing, sweep Malaysia terminalCivil defence personnel in hazmat suits sealed off the scene of the airport assassination of Kim Jong-Nam early Sunday to sweep the site for toxins — almost two weeks after he was killed with a lethal nerve agent. The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was assassinated on February 13 at the airport, with Malaysia revealing on Friday that the lethal VX nerve agent — manufactured for chemical warfare and listed by the UN as a weapon of mass destruction — was used to kill him. Large sections of the terminal’s departures hall were cordoned off with police tape in preparation for a 75-minute sweep for traces of the highly potent toxin as a few curious onlookers watched.
