Defense questions VX claims in third day of Kim Jong Nam murder trial

Lawyers accuse pathologist of a "bias conclusion" in case of Doan Thi Huong and Siti Aisyah

The question of whether Kim Jong Nam was murdered with the VX nerve agent came under question in court in Malaysia today, during the third day of the trial of two women accused of his murder.

In an extended cross-examination of pathologist Dr. Mohd Shah Bin Mahmood, defense attorney Gooi Soon Seng sought to challenge longstanding claims by the prosecution and local police that the half-brother of Kim Jong Un had been murdered using the VX nerve agent.
