Kim’s kin had antidote to poison that killed him

Kuala Lumpur: Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was carrying a dozen vials of atropine, the antidote for the nerve agent VX, in his backpack when he was poisoned, a Malaysian court heard on Friday. He died at Kuala Lumpur airport on February 13 this year when VX was wiped on his face by two women in their 20s. Indonesian Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, who face murder charges, say four North Korean agents made them believe they were taking part in a prank for reality television.
