U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump tweeted that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is returning from North Korea with three detained American citizens.



U.S. officials had said their release would be a significant goodwill gesture ahead of the Trump-Kim summit that is expected later this month or in early June.

The three Korean-Americans - Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim - are all accused by the North of anti-state activities.

Meantime, a date and place for the historic summit between President Trump and President Kim Jong Un has been set. The details have not yet been released.
