HANOI (AFP): Vietnam on Tuesday (March 12) asked Malaysia to free the Vietnamese woman charged with assassinating the North Korean leader's half brother in Kuala Lumpur, a day after her Indonesian co-accused was suddenly released.

Vietnamese citizen Doan Thi Huong is on trial for murder in Malaysia for the brazen Cold War-style killing of Kim Jong-nam, the half brother of Kim Jong-un, in a busy Kuala Lumpur airport in 2017.
