Police hand over samples to Chemistry Department

KUALA LUMPUR: The Chemistry Department has received several samples of a product from the police over their investigations into the killing of Kim Jong-nam, elder half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Its forensics division director Dr Cornelia Charito Siricord said the samples would be analysed as soon as possible.

She declined to say what type of product it was or the number of samples delivered and whether the product was a liquid or poison.
