Kuala Lumpur, - Malaysia on Sunday declared its international airport a "safe zone" after completing a sweep of the terminal where the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was assaulted with a deadly chemical last week.
The police forensic team, fire department and Atomic Energy Licensing Board swept the budget terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA2) today.
"We confirm that there is no hazardous material found in KLIA2, and KLIA2 is free from any form of contamination of hazardous material and thirdly, KLIA2 is declared a safe zone," police chief of Selangor state who is leading the investigation, told reporters at the airport.
Malaysia's health minister earlier said that an autopsy suggested the toxin used to kill Kim Jong-nam caused "very serious paralysis". (QNA)
