North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un's half-brother was carrying a VX 'antidote' when he was assassinated with the deadly nerve agent, a lawyer said yesterday. Kim Jong-Nam had 12 tablets of Atropine in his backpack when he was attacked, said defence lawyer Gooi Soon Seng, citing testimony from the ongoing trial of the two women accused of killing him. A poison expert from the Malaysian government testified this week that Kim was carrying Atropine, which is used for treatment for people who have been attacked with nerve agents such as VX. It is also used for treating stomach cramps.
