Originally charged with murdering North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in the Kuala Lumpur airport in 2017, 30-year-old Vietnamese citizen Doan Thi Huong was finally freed from a Malaysian prison Friday.

She’s the second suspect in the killing to have been released.
So who was behind Kim’s murder? Some analysts suggest that with the only suspects now free, whoever planned his assassination has successfully evaded justice.
