When you were a child did you perform PRANKS on your schoolmates?
= a mischievous trick or joke, especially one in which something is done rather than said
= to perform a prank on (someone)
Watch this prank at an airport.
Now, let's look at a story that is not funny in any way.
The headline is: Did two women murder Kim Jong-nam?
In Malaysia, the trial of two women accused of murdering Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader is underway. Listen to this BBC Podcast.
The BBC report talks about 'The audacious nature of his killing, using the highly toxic VX nerve agent as he waited for a flight at Kuala Lumpur airport in February, shocked the world. Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 29, and Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, are accused of rubbing the chemical on Mr Kim's face. They say they had been told it was a harmless prank. Doug Bock Clark told Dan Damon about his investigations into the killing.'
