Women accused of killing Kim Jong-nam await trial

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA — One of the women suspected of murdering Kim Jong Un's elder half-brother, Kim Jong-Nam is set to testify in court next week, reports the AFP.

In February 2017, Kim Jong-Nam was traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Macau when he was reportedly poisoned by two women, now identified as Doan Thi Huong from Vietnam and Siti Aisyah from Indonesia.

Citing unnamed police sources, state news agency Bernama reported that one woman sprayed chemicals on Kim Jong-Nam's face and immediately after, the second woman held a cloth over his face for 10 seconds.

Reuters reported that traces of the deadly nerve agent VX was found on the women's clothing.

VX blocks signals between the nervous system and the body's muscles.

This causes muscular paralysis which results in death via asphyxiation.

Malaysian officials also identified four other men at the airport who are suspected of being North Korean agents that directed the attack.

The Washington Post reports that U.S. officials believe Huong and Aisyah were following direct orders from Pyongyang while Huong claims that she thought she was participating in a prank television show.

Huang is believed to have been recruited by North Korean officials while working at a bar in Hanoi.

North Korea has denied any type of involvement, however, the four agents who were identified by Malaysian officials fled the country soon after the attack took place.

Kim Jong Nam and Kim Jong Un are both sons of former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, however, they were born to different mothers.

Some speculate that Un felt threatened by his elder brother and orchestrated his assassination.
