No family member claims body of Kim Jong-nam

    No family member claims body of Kim Jong-nam

    Feb.21, Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian authorities are yet to formally identify the body of Kim Jong-nam as no family member has come forward, according to officials. 

    The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un died last week after apparently being poisoned while waiting for a flight at a Kuala Lumpur airport. There has been growing speculation that his son, Kim Han-sol, has travelled to Malaysia to claim the body.

    Malaysia says the cause of death remains unknown.

    According to the country's health ministry, laboratory test results are still being awaited. The post-mortem examination showed no evidence of a heart attack and no puncture wounds were found on Mr Kim's body, director general of health Dr Hisham Abdullah told reporters.

    The case has caused a diplomatic row between North Korea and Malaysia, which has refused to hand over the remains and conducted the post-mortem examination despite North Korean objections, BBC media reproted.

    Security is high at the mortuary in Kuala Lumpur holding the body of Kim Jong-nam.
