Pyongyang has claimed that the US Central Intelligence agency has used a 'nano-poisonous' radioactive bio-chemical agent in an attempt to assassinate their country's leader Kim Jong Un.  

North Korean official news agency on Friday accused the US and South Korean spy agencies of an assassination attempt on leader Kim Jong Un involving biochemical weapons.

The spy agencies in June 2014 "ideologically corrupted and bribed" a North Korean citizen who was working in Russia to carry out the alleged assassination on Kim after returning home, the reports quoting the interior ministry.

Further, the South Korean agents gave money and satellite communication equipment to North Korea man to kill Kim during a public event using the biochemical weapon such as a delayed-action radioactive or "nano poisonous" substance, the ministry was quoted as saying by North Korea's official news agency Friday.

 “After a series of contacts and payments, the agents told the North Korean man last month that the type of biochemical substance had been decided and would be supplied by the CIA.” The ministry added.

The North Korean news agency did not mention how the alleged plot was busted nor it mentioned the name of the North Korean suspect. Moreover, it did not even say if anyone was in custody.

“We will "ferret out and mercilessly destroy" the "terrorists" in the CIA and South Korean intelligence agency responsible for targeting its supreme leadership.” North Korea's Ministry of State Security said.

The alleged plan to use a biochemical agent on a member of North Korea's ruling family resembles the assassination earlier this year of Kim Jong Un's exiled half brother at a Malaysian airport.

 That attack, using the chemical war agent VX, was widely blamed on North Korea and led to calls in the United States to relist the North as a state sponsor of terrorism. North Korea denied involvement.

"Korean-style anti-terrorist attack will be commenced from this moment to sweep away the intelligence and plot-breeding organizations of the US imperialists and the puppet clique,(referring to South Korea).”

There was no official denial from the US or South Korea to the North allegations about the assassination plot
