Kim Jong Nam: The plot to murder North Korea's exiled son

Two women from humble backgrounds in Indonesia and Vietnam are the only people charged in the world's most high-profile murder mystery. Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong face the death penalty if they are convicted of murdering Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and half-brother of the country's current ruler, Kim Jong Un. Aisyah and Huong, who claim they were duped into doing it, are both expected to plead not guilty to murder at Malaysia's High Court Friday, Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, the lawyer for Huong said. "She's a bit anxious about the trial, but she feels confident," he said after visiting Huong Thursday. "She knows she is innocent."
