United States commandos who KILLED Osama bin Laden readying to WIPEOUT Kim Jong

The police had last month denied claims that Jong-nam's family members had arrived in Malaysia to identify the body and said they had not received any DNA sample from his family members.

But Malaysian authorities suspect North Korea orchestrated the assassination of the leader's brother, who is known to have criticised the country's hereditary succession, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Feb 13, using the highly toxic nerve agent VX. He told Japanese authorities at the time that he wanted to visit Tokyo Disneyland.

North Korea has demanded the body back from Day One and objected to Malaysia's autopsy.

North Korea has never confirmed the identity of the victim, who was carrying a passport bearing the name of Kim Chol when he was attacked. "There is no time limit to claim the body, and as this is a high-profile case, we should not rush to make any decision".

He also said that talks with representatives and North Korea has given its assurance that the nine Malaysians in Pyongyang are safe and remained the utmost priority during the negotiations.

Malaysian authorities say 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.

"I think after the identification, we'll give ourselves about two to three weeks to solve the problem".

Speaking to theSun today, Noor Farida also questioned the security vetting by the police as part of the MM2H programme, claiming that North Korea is known to send spies to other countries.

The footage was uploaded to the video-sharing website YouTube by a group called "Cheollima Civil Defence", which it says has been protecting Kim Jong-nam's family.

Malaysian police named a few North Korean nationals, including an embassy official at Kuala Lumpur, as suspects in the slaying.

Citing Immigration Department statistics, Zahid also said there were 2,453 North Korean citizens who have stayed in Malaysia between 2014 and this year.

Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and Doan Thi Huong, 28, from Vietnam, have since been charged with his murder and face the death penalty if found guilty.

The tension escalated quickly when Malaysia removed North Korean ambassador Kang Chol due to the deteriorating diplomatic ties.

A video clip has since appeared showing Jong Nam's son Kim Han Sol identifying himself and speaking in English.
