Mr Kim was allegedly murdered using the VX nerve agent - a chemical toxin classified as a weapon of mass destruction - at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 on Feb 13.

The new rocket marked the "new birth of the Juche-based rocket industry" state-run news agency KCNA reported, adding that it would help consolidate the country's technological foundation in "world-level" satellite delivery capability. The daily says the man is believed to be Chang Nam-un, a man in his mid-30s, and it says he's believed to have played a significant role in Kim Jong-nam's murder. "Obviously we have a very bad relationship with them, we're not pals, [but] to be able to exert influence on North to encourage our friends in the region who I think are rightfully concerned with North Korea as well to step up".

"We have obtained the red notice for the four North Korean men who were at the airport during the incident", Khalid told journalists in Putrajaya.

Police have also arrested the boyfriend of the Indonesian woman identified as Siti Aisyah, born in 1992 in Serang, Indonesia.

"It's being able to have those folks that are closer to the north", he said.

The source added that if the government decides to send the remains to North Korea soon, the body could be taken there before decomposition sets in. The unnamed expert quoted by NST said this was to indicate that "the job was done".
