Siti Aisyah, 26, stood accused of poisoning Kim Jong-nam with liquid VX, a banned chemical weapon, at Kuala Lumpur airport in February 2017. She had faced the death penalty and when told she would be released turned to her Vietnamese co-defendant Doan Thi Huong, 30, in the dock before tearfully embracing her.

Performing her role as personal secretary to her brother, Kim Yo Jong appeared at a railway station with a crystal ashtray, took away gifts and flowers and was seen in charge of directing staff.

But very little is known about the dictator behind the military regime. Here is everything we do know. Who is Kim Jong-un? Kim is the second child of his predecessor as Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-il and his wife Kim Yong-hui.
