FILE - In this combination of the Oct. 2, 2017 file photos, Indonesian Siti Aisyah, left, and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, right, are escorted by police as they leave their court hearing at Shah Alam court house in Shah Alam, outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Almost as soon as Kim Jong Nam was killed in a crowded Kuala Lumpur airport budget terminal, the Internet broadcast the attack to millions of people around the world. Security camera footage showed Kim, who had been jumped by two mysterious women, Aisyah and Huong, gesturing for help, his face covered with an obscure but exceedingly potent poison. By the time he got to a hospital, he was dead. The young women who face the death penalty if convicted are Aisyah, who is Indonesian, and Huong, who is Vietnamese. (AP Photos/Daniel Chan, File)
