Round two: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump have arrived in Hanoi, where meetings are due to start on Wednesday. They'll discuss ways to implement Pyongyang's promise to give up its nuclear weapons.
Xi Jinping is set to become the first Chinese president to travel to North Korea in 14 years. The visit comes as denuclearization talks between North Korea and the United States appear to be at a standstill.
A South Korea paper citing an anonymous source said that Kim Hyok Chol was accused of being a US spy and killed. Several officials who also worked on the meeting with the US have been killed or jailed, the paper said.
Both Koreas have shied away from describing the weapons test as a "missile launch." Nonetheless, Kim Jong Un was reportedly very happy with his latest "projectile" launch into the Sea of Japan.
Ahead of a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Donald Trump has dismissed recent missile tests in nearby North Korea. He later joined Abe for a round of golf outside Tokyo.
