3 Americans detained by N. Korea reportedly transferred to hotel ahead of Trump-Kim talks

North Korea has reportedly transferred three American prisoners out of labor camps into a hotel, ahead of the planned summit between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump. According to a South Korean activist representing 'Family Assembly of those Abducted to North Korea', the three, Kim Hak-song, Kim Sang-duk and Kim Dong-chul, were moved to the outskirts of Pyongyang sometime in mid-April. The detainees, convicted of “hostile acts” against the North Korean government and people, are widely expected to be freed as a goodwill gesture ahead of the much-anticipated talks. The US State Department was unable to immediately confirm the reports.
