The Assassination of Kim Jong-nam – A Prank Gone Wrong?

In 2017, while walking through the departures hall of Malaysia’s international airport, Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, was approached by two women. 

One of the women covered his eyes with her hands before both women ran off. An hour later, Kim Jong-nam was dead due to exposure to VX, the most lethal nerve gas on earth. 

The world was shocked by the brazenness of the murder, which was captured by airport security cameras.

The women, Siti Aisyah, and Doan Thi Huong, both from Vietnam, claimed that they thought they were doing a video prank and that the substance was baby oil. 

The women were released after two years in prison after having their charges dropped and reduced. 

It is widely believed that Kim Jong-nam was killed on the orders of his half-brother Kim Jong-un.
