PETALING JAYA, Malaysia — A Malaysian airport security video shows the poisoned half brother of North Korea’s leader apparently unconscious on a gurney and being pumped with oxygen by medical attendants as they wait for an elevator to take him to an ambulance.
The video reviewed by The Associated Press on Monday shows what may be Kim Jong Nam’s final recorded moments of life after he fell perilously ill at the international airport in Kuala Lumpur on Feb. 13. It emerged as the trial of two women accused of killing Kim by smearing VX nerve agent on his face at the behest of suspected North Korean agents is underway at Malaysia’s High Court.
