U.S. checks reports three American detainees relocated in North Korea

The U.S. government is looking into reports that three Americans detained in North Korea were relocated from a labor camp to a hotel near Pyongyang, ahead of a planned summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a U.S. official said.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity on Wednesday, said there was no immediate confirmation of any change in the detainees’ status. Trump administration officials have pressed for their release as a show of goodwill by North Korea before the unprecedented U.S.-North Korea summit expected to take place in late May or early June.

“As everybody is aware, the past Administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a North Korean Labor camp, but to no avail. Stay tuned!” Trump said in a Twitter post late on Wednesday.
