000_m19zh_w504-1JAMAICA OBSERVER – Vietnam said Saturday the Vietnamese woman accused of killing North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s half brother told officials she thought she was taking part in a prank for a comedy video.

Doan Thi Huong was arrested alongside an Indonesian woman, with both accused of carrying out a fatal poison attack on Kim Jong-Nam in Malaysia on February 13.

Leaked CCTV footage from Kuala Lumpur airport shows two women shoving something into Kim’s face. The 45-year-old later suffered a seizure and was dead before he reached hospital.

Huong told Vietnam’s foreign ministry that she believed she was tricked into killing Kim in a bizarre Cold-War-style killing.

“She is in stable health. During contact with embassy staff, Huong said she… had thought she was playing a role in a humorous video clip,” a statement from Vietnam’s foreign ministry said, confirming that she was a Vietnamese national.
