Armed guards have begun 24-hour security around the Malaysian morgue where North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's estranged half-brother Kim Jong Nam's body is being kept after an alleged break-in attempt, officials said Wednesday.Since Kim Jong Nam's death on Feb. 13, no claims have been made to the body, but police have asked for DNA samples from a relative to ensure that it is in fact Kim Jong Nam. Dental records and finger prints are currently being used to identify the corpse, the hospital carrying out the post-mortem examination confirmed to NBC News.Malaysian officials said they do not believe the North Koreans were behind the forced entering — a suspect has been identified but they didn't release any information about the person. It's also not clear what Malaysian officials classify as a "break-in."

Now that you can easily skip through traditional television commercials, advertisers are finding creative new ways to get their brands on your radar, the NBC Los Angeles I-team reported.A recent survey found that 76 percent of people use their digital video recorder ("DVR") and/or ad blocking software to avoid commercials on television and online. A total of 68 percent of those surveyed admit to remembering fewer than five advertisements that they've seen in the past week.With billions of ad dollars at stake, marketers are turning to less obvious strategies to get consumers to buy.One technique that's proven effective is "product placement," where a company pays to have its product appear in the background of a TV show. Nielsen identified 4,538 instances of product placement during the 2015-2016 television season.
