    Trump-Kim summit: At least 9 South Koreans involved in separate protests in Singapore; five of them deported

    At least nine South Koreans staged protests in venues linked to the Trump-Kim summit this week, with five of them arrested under the Public Order Act and deported on Wednesday (13 June).

The five women were arrested on Monday at around 9.10pm along Tanglin Road near St Regis, the hotel where North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his delegation were staying.

    North Korea gets first big dose of Trump summit news

    North Koreans got their first big dose of news Monday that their leader Kim Jong Un had arrived in Singapore for what even the state-run media was calling a historic meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump. The news covered the front page of the ruling party's newspaper and was the top — and only — item on the first news broadcast of the day on Korean Central Television, which for many North Koreans is the only channel available. People crowded around poster stands at subway stations around the capital to read the news and gathered at noon in front of the city's main train station to watch a big screen display of images of Kim getting off the special Air China flight that took him to Singapore.

    Trump and Kim in Singapore for historic US-North Korea summit

    Just about 24 hours before the moment President Donald Trump was expected to shake hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, questions remained about the highly-anticipated summit. It will be the first time a sitting U.S. president has met face-to-face with a North Korean leader and the two men are expected to discuss North Korea’s illicit nuclear weapons program, and a potential deal to denuclearize the communist country. Only two weeks ago, Trump canceled the meeting, citing “open hostility” from North Korea.

    In eye of storm, North Koreans sees scant news of Kim's trip

    With all the attention focused on Singapore and the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pyongyang must be buzzing with excitement, right? Instead, North Korea's capital was like the calm in the center of a storm. With few sources of information other than government-run media, gossip and word of mouth, North Koreans were largely in the dark about the momentous — and potentially life-changing — events taking place outside of their isolated nation.

    TOKYO (AP) — When North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump hold their summit at an exclusive venue in Singapore, one of the priciest destinations in Asia, they will no doubt run up quite a bill. And if past precedent is any indication, expect Pyongyang to pay as little of it as possible.
