TOKYO, March 1. /TASS/. Malaysian prosecutors on Wednesday charged two women, an Indonesian and a Vietnamese, with murder over the killing of Kim Jong Nam, a half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the Kyodo news agency reported Wednesday.
According to earlier reports, the two women coated their hands with a chemical and then wiped them on Kim Jong Nam's face at a departure hall of Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13. The chemical has been identified as the highly toxic nerve agent VX.
The suspects, aged 25 and 29, were detained within 24 hours after the murder. Both women claimed they were not aware of the poisoning and thought they were taking part in a prank. However, Malaysian law-enforcement bodies are convinced that the women were aware of their actions.
