Indonesian Suspect in Kim Jong Nam Murder Freed
Malaysian authorities have dropped a murder charge against Siti Aisyah, the 27-year-old woman accused of killing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in the Kuala Lumpur airport in 2017. The country’s attorney general reportedly said good relations between Indonesia and Malaysia were partially responsible for the decision. Vietnamese suspect Doan Thi Huong remains behind bars, but both maintain they’re innocent.
Who was Kim Jong Nam? Once considered a potential future leader of North Korea, Kim became estranged from the family and publicly spoke out against the dynasty while living abroad.
