Fear Of Kim Jong Un Could Keep Half-Brother's Family From Claiming Body

On Friday, Malaysian police confirmed that Kim Chol and Kim Jong Nam was the same person, but refused to say how they identified Kim.

"Now with the positive identification of the body, we are told that he had a wife or wives and children", Health Minister Subramaniam Sathasivam said.

Kim had apparently told Japanese officials at the time of his detention that he wanted to visit Disneyland in the country.

Malaysia says Kim Jong Nam died after two women smeared his face with the banned VX nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur's airport on February 13, but North Korea - which is widely suspected to be behind the attack - rejects the findings. He did not elaborate on how authorities came to the conclusion, or whether DNA samples were still needed to identify the body.

North Korea has referred to the deceased only as Kim Chol, the name that appeared in the diplomatic passport he was traveling on when he died. Two women - one Indonesian, one Vietnamese - have been charged with murder but say they were duped into thinking they were playing a harmless prank.

"As long as the US and its followers persist with their nuclear threat and blackmails against the DPRK, and as long as they do not give up the war exercise they stage under the cloak of annual drills right in front of the DPRK, the DPRK will continue to bolster the self-reliance defense capability and capability for the pre-emptive strike with nuclear force", Kim In Ryong said.

Duke vs. Clemson - 3/8/17 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction
The Bison (26-8) are back in the tournament for the first time since 2013 and seem ready to shake up the brackets one more time. Jaron Blossomgame and Shelton Mitchell both scored 22 points for the Tigers, who led for almost 38 minutes in the game.

On March 7, North Korea prohibited Malaysians in that country from leaving and Malaysia also took similar action in terms of the North Koreans in this country.

"So we hope that those people will respond and come forward to claim the body".

It has widely been speculated that Pyongyang may have ordered the assassination of Jong Nam, who was waiting to board a flight to Macau, where he had been living in exile.

Nine Malaysians - three embassy staff and members of their families - are in North Korea while about 315 North Koreans are in Malaysia. He added that they had been offered support from other foreign missions in Pyongyang, including the provision of supplies from outside North Korea.

North Korea dismissed allegations that the hit was ordered by the country's leader and instead accused Malaysia of manipulating investigations.

A video of a young man claiming to be Kim Jong Nam's son, had surfaced online last week, from an undisclosed location.
