Malaysia says Kim body embalmed to halt decomposition

Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi didn't say when and where the DNA sample was taken.

Health officials told the AP that Kim's relatives would have a few weeks to retrieve the body.
The assassination of Kim Jong-Nam in Malaysia in February sparked a heated diplomatic standoff between Kuala Lumpur and Pyongyang, which has seen both countries expel each other's ambassador and refuse to let their citizens leave.
Ahmad Zahid, who is also home minister, declined to provide further details.
The footage was uploaded to YouTube by a group called Cheollima Civil Defense, which said it has been protecting Kim Jong-nam's family.

Police say the other three, including a North Korean diplomat and an employee of Air Koryo, North Korea's state airline, are believed to be in the North Korean Embassy in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia issued a similar ban for the 315 North Koreans still in the country. The suspects have been arrested and charged with the murder.
"We will send the North Korean workers who are in Sarawak, who have exceeded their visa period, back to Pyongyang".
Zahid said on Tuesday Kim's body, which is now kept in a morgue in the Malaysian capital, has been embalmed to prevent it from decomposing.
Earlier this month, the Malaysian government barred the Malaysia national team from travelling to North Korea for the match, citing security reasons, with the AFC last week finally announcing its postponement.
The handover has been a key demand of the regime as Malaysia negotiates the safe return of nine embassy staff and family members who are effectively being held hostage in the North.
North Korea has, to date, also referred to the victim as Kim Chol, including in its limited state media coverage following his death, in which it has identified him as "a citizen of the DPRK bearing a diplomatic passport".
