Pompeo back home from N. Korea

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday, is excepted to finalize the release of three US citizens that are being held captive in a North Korean labor camp, Yonhap reported on Wednesday, citing a South Korean presidential office official. Pompeo is on his second trip to North Korea, which is primarily focused on thrashing out the details and the agenda of the highly-anticipated meeting between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump later this month. “We expect him [Pompeo] to bring the date, time and the captives,” the official said. Korean-American missionary Kim Dong-chul and Korean-American academics Kim Sang-duk and Kim Hak-song are expected to be turned over to the US.
