South Korean intelligence officials allege half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was killed with VX, a deadliest chemical that is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by United Nations. It is deadly event in microscopic amounts. It is odorless, colorless and tasteless liquid.

The two identified women are believed to have wiped VX on Kim Jong Nam’s face at the Kuala Lumpur airport on February 13 when he waited to board a flight.

A former NATO commanding officer and leading chemical weapons expert said, “VX is the most toxic chemical weapon ever produced.”

The ‘V’ in VX stands for ‘venom’ and it was developed by a British scientist Ranajit Ghosh who was actually researching pesticides in the early 1950s.

Production of VX in full-scale started in 1961 by the American government after its formula was shared by United Kingdom.

United States as well as Russia built up VX in large quantities along with other chemical weapons during the Cold War.

In the 1980s the 5th President of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, was accused of weaponizing the chemical.

Following the recent Paris attacks by ISIS terror group the French military feared the militants would use VX and issued antidotes like Atropine to administer immediately to be effective and have a chance at survival.

The VX is believed to have been made in North Korea and smuggled in Malaysia to kill Kim Jong Nam. It is now believed the north may use VX in its long-range missile and fire at a military base or a city.
