Man claiming to be Kim Jong-nam's son records video address

But a private voice analysis institute in Seoul said there was a "high probability" that Kim Han Sol in the 2012 interview, which can also be found on YouTube, and the man in the latest video clip were the same speaker.

A North Korean man who identified himself as the son of slain Kim Jong Nam in a YouTube video may have fled to the Netherlands, Yonhap reported. It's not clear where Kim Han Sol is in the video or when it was shot, though he says his father was killed "a few days ago". Han-sol lives with his mother and sister.

He ends the 40-second video saying "we hope this get's better soon".

Malaysian authorities have confirmed that the North Korean citizen killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) on February 13 was Kim Jong Nam, the Inspector-General of Police told a press conference on Friday.

Experts say the VX nerve agent used to kill Kim was nearly certainly produced in a sophisticated state weapons laboratory, and North Korea is widely believed to possess large quantities of chemical weapons.

Khalid's announcement today is the first official confirmation from Malaysia despite Pyongyang's insistence that Jong Nam was Kim Chol, the name given on his passport.

South Korean intelligence and USA officials say Kim Jong-nam's murder was an assassination organised by North Korean agents.

Kim Jong Nam was the half brother of Kim Jong Un - they shared a father, Kim Jong Il - but are thought to have met only once, at their grandfather's funeral in 1994.

His wife and children, who were living in exile in the Chinese territory of Macau, have since gone into hiding over fears that his 21-year-old son, Kim Han-Sol, could be seen as a potential rival by his uncle Kim Jong-Un in a country roiled by bloody purges.

Two Malaysians working for the UN World Food Programme were permitted to leave North Korea on Thursday.

On its website - registered only on Saturday - CCD said that it was protecting Kim Jong-Nam's family. Some of the video has been censored, and he holds up his North Korean passport to verify his identity. "We have in the past addressed other urgent needs for protection", the Cheollima Civil Defense statement said, adding that the whereabouts of the family will not be addressed.

It subsequently escalated into a travel ban by North Korea, which Malaysia reciprocated with a similar ban to block North Koreans here from leaving the country.

Malaysian authorities said North Koreans put the deadly nerve agent VX on the hands of Aisyah and Huong, who then placed the toxin on Mr Kim's face.

North Korea wants to secure tangible military assistance from China in order to prepare against possible Japanese attacks that could be launched in the event of a war on the Korean Peninsula, he said.
