Malaysia and N. Korea are at odds over the killing of Kim Jong Un's half-brother
The trial of two Southeast Asian women accused of killing Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in a stunning attack using the nerve agent VX resumed today in Malaysia.
The women broke down as they toured the Kuala Lumpur airport as part of their murder trial. Both maintain that they were tricked into smearing the deadly chemical agent, after being told it was a harmless prank.
Two women pleaded not guilty to murdering the half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un as their trial got underway in Malaysia. They deny having knowingly rubbed the toxic VX nerve agent in Kim Jong Nam's face.
A confidential memo has revealed Pyongyang flouted UN sanctions on exports of a wide range of goods. Germany has alleged that North Korea is using its Berlin embassy to buy equipment for its weapons program.
