Malaysia airport clear of VX nerve agent, officials say

(CNN)No one at a Malaysian airport has gotten sick from exposure to VX nerve agent, which police say was used in the killing of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un, airport officials said Saturday.

“No anomalies on the medical cases” have been reported at the clinic and the staff member who attended to Kim before he died “is in good health,” according to a statement by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, which manages the airport.
The ministry of health told the public not to worry, because “those exposed would have shown signs and symptoms immediately or within 18 hours after the exposure,” according to the statement.
Four people have been arrested in the killing and four men, who police say are North Korean, have left the country, police said.
North Korea vehemently denies any involvement in Kim’s death.
