Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong are accused of smearing face of North Korean leader’s estranged half-brother with VX nerve agent
Two women accused of killing the estranged half-brother of North Korea’s leader with a banned nerve agent have pleaded not guilty at the start of their trial in Malaysia’s high court, nearly eight months after the assassination.
Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 28, are suspected of rubbing VX agent in Kim Jong-nam’s face and eyes on 13 February at an airport terminal in Kuala Lumpur, killing him within about 20 minutes. The women allege they were duped into believing they were playing a harmless prank for a hidden-camera show.
