Calgary Herald - - WORLD -

North Ko­rea has is­sued an in­for­mal apol­ogy to Viet­nam for in­volv­ing one of its ci­ti­zens in the as­sas­si­na­tion of Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in Malaysia, South Korean press re­ports have claimed.

The re­ports cite a South Korean govern­ment of­fi­cial as say­ing that North Ko­rea “be­lat­edly apol­o­gized” for the al­leged re­cruit­ment by the son of a for­mer am­bas­sador, of Doan Thi Huong, pic­tured. Huong, 29, and Siti Aisyah, 25, an In­done­sian, are stand­ing trial in Kuala Lumpur for the mur­der of Kim Jong Nam.
