Kim Jong-nam death: Mystery video of son emerges

A video has emerged of the son of Kim Jong-nam, the murdered half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, as stated by BBC

In the short and censored clip, the man says: "My name is Kim Han-sol, from North Korea, part of the Kim family."

He says he is with his mother and sister, but there are no details on the date or location. It's the Kim family's first public comment since the murder.

His father was killed in Kuala Lumpur airport on 13 February by attackers who smeared his face with VX nerve agent.

Officials at South Korea's Unification Ministry and National Intelligence Service say the man in the video is Kim Han-sol.

The 40-second clip features the man identified as Kim Han-sol sitting against a grey wall. In perfect, slightly accented English, he introduces himself and says: "My father has been killed a few days ago. I'm currently with my mother and my sister."

He shows what appears to be a North Korean diplomatic passport to confirm his identity, though the details have been blocked out, and says he is "grateful to..." before the audio and image are censored.

He ends by saying: "We hope this gets better soon."

As his father was killed on 13 February, it is unclear when and where the video was filmed, and what Kim Han-sol's current whereabouts are.
