Murder charges dropped against woman accused of assassinating Kim Jong Un’s ...

Vietnamese Huong and an Indonesian woman, Siti Aisyah, were charged with killing Kim Jong Nam by smearing his face with VX poison at Kuala Lumpur's main airport in February 2017.

The two women claim they thought they were part of a reality TV prank which they had been rehearsing for weeks beforehand in various public places by smearing bystanders' faces to see their reaction. 

Huong had been wearing a t-shirt with the word LOL emblazoned across it when Kim Jong Nam was attacked and gained instant notoriety across Asia after CCTV footage was shown across the world.

Siti Aisyah was released last month after prosecutors dropped all charges against her.
