The Indonesian woman freed after being accused of killing the half-brother of North Korea’s leader says she was “shocked” when she learned of her release.
Siti Aisyah had been accused of smearing VX nerve agent on Kim Jong-nam’s face in Kuala Lumpur airport.
In an interview with the BBC, she said at one point she had thought: “Is this the end of my life?”
She repeated that she was not involved in Mr Kim’s murder in 2017.
Ms Aisyah refused to go into details when asked about how she was recruited, and about the men who recruited her.
She and her co-accused, Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong – who also denies murder – say they thought they were part of a TV prank.

“I never (thought) that I was being entangled to such an extent,” Ms Aisyah told BBC Indonesian a day after her release.
“(I was) shocked at first, I couldn’t believe it,” she said of her release. “But I’m happy.”
Ms Aisyah, who had been working in Malaysia since 2015, said she had seen Ms Huong in prison sometimes, but that they had never discussed the killing.
