    Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong are on trial for the murder of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korea leader Kim Jong Un. The two claim they thought they were participating in a game show. Malaysian police brought them back to the scene of the crime this week – an airport.

The two women on trial in Malaysia in connection with the murder of Kim Jong Nam were taken back to the scene of the crime on Monday – the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Kim Jong Nam was North Korea leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother. Siti Aisyah, who is Indonesian, and Doan Thi Huong, who is Vietnamese, are accused of rubbing a highly toxic nerve agent on Kim Jong Nam’s face.

Both have pleaded not guilty and claim they were told it was a game show prank.

Along with the suspects, judges, lawyers, and scores of police were also brought to the airport. Many of the pictures, seen below, are from the check-in area, where authorities say Kim Jong Nam was attacked.


Armed police were everywhere in the airport.
