KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's police chief confirmed on Friday that the man murdered at Kuala Lumpur International Airport last month was Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

It was the first time the police had officially confirmed the identity of the man who was carrying a passport under the name of Kim Chol.

Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar did not give details on how the body was identified.
