KUALA LUMPUR: The dead man is definitely Kim Jong-nam. Police have identified the body of the assassinated North Korean man and they have confirmed that he is the half-brother of that country’s leader Kim Jong-un.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar would not say how they confirmed the identity or if they had managed to get the DNA of close relatives of the man who had been carrying a passport in the name of Kim Chol.
