Two women have been charged with murder of Kim Jong-nam, the half brother of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. A Vitenamese woman, Doan Thi Huong, and an Indonesian woman, Siti Aisyah, were declared guilty by a Malaysian court.

Tests showed that Kim Jong-nam was killed using an extremely toxic nerve agent known as VX. One drop of the chemical on a person’s skin can kill them in minutes.
