The family of the Vietnamese suspect in the murder of Kim Jong Nam said on Thursday that the Attorney General's decision to not release Doan Thi Huong was an "injustice" and was "so unfair".

Huong was accused along with Indonesian Siti Aisyah of killing Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, by smearing his face with VX poison at Kuala Lumpur airport. The Malaysian court had dropped the charge against Siti Aisyah and freed her on Monday.
