Kim Jong Nam died within 20 minutes (due to severe paralysis) after he was attacked by a dose of nerve agent (banned chemical weapon VX nerve agent) by two women who wiped a liquid on Kim’s face.
The dose of VX given to Kim was so high that he showed symptoms within minutes. Kim fainted at the airport clinic and died a ‘very painful death’ in the ambulance while en route to a hospital. “The doses were so high it would have affected his heart, lungs, everything, within a span of 15-20 minutes,” Malaysian Health Minister Subramaniam Sathasivam

What is the deadly VX nerve agent?
- The most potent of known chemical warfare agents, the amber-coloured, oily liquid is tasteless and odourless
- It works by penetrating the skin and disrupting the transmission of nerve impulses – a drop on the skin can kill in minutes. Lower doses can cause eye pain, blurred vision, drowsiness and vomiting
- VX can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, or eye contact
Officials say four North Korean men provided two women with poison to carry out the attack. While the four men fled Malaysia on the same day of the killing, the women—one from Indonesia and the other Vietnamese—were arrested.
North Korea has denied any role in the attack.
