Malaysian court tells women charged in killing of North Korean to enter defense

Two Southeast Asian women on trial for the brazen assassination of the North Korean leader's half brother were told to begin their defense Thursday, extending the trial for several more months. Indonesia's Siti Aisyah, 25, and Vietnam's Doan Thi Huong, 29, are accused of smearing VX nerve agent on Kim Jong Nam's face in an airport terminal in Kuala Lumpur on Feb. 13, 2017. The women have said they thought they were taking part in a prank for a hidden-camera show. Credit: Reuters
