Kim Jong-Nam Murder: 'Enough Evidence' For Women To Go On Trial


A Malaysian court has ruled that the evidence against two women accused of murdering the half-brother of North Korea's leader is strong enough for the case to go to trial.

Kim Jong-nam died at Kuala Lumpur's airport last year after the toxic VX nerve agent was rubbed on his face.

Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong pleaded not guilty - they say they thought they were taking part in a TV prank show.

They could face the death penalty if convicted of murder.

Defence lawyers had earlier been confident that the case against their clients would be dropped, saying it was clear they had no motive to kill Mr Kim.

But a judge has ruled that the actions of the two women which were captured on security camera footage were enough to infer that they had intended to kill him.
