Kim Jong-nam death: 'son' says he's safe in video

By Staff Reporter

A man claiming to be the son of the slain half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has appeared in a YouTube video saying he is safely with his mother and sister.

An official at the South Korean National Intelligence Service's public affairs office said the NIS had determined the man in the video is Kim Jong-nam's son Kim Han-sol, believed to be 22.

Kim Jong-nam was killed in Malaysia on February 13.

North Korea is widely suspected to be behind the attack. A 2012 interview with the son by Finnish television can be found on YouTube. A voice analysis institute said there was a "high probability" both videos feature the same speaker.
