Korea’s Kim Jong-un met Pompeo in a new Rolls-Royce Phantom, violating sanctions Growth of Ebola cases suddenly surges in DR Congo, threatening Uganda, Rwanda N. Korea’s Kim Jong-un met Pompeo in a new Rolls-Royce Phantom, violating sanctions U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea’s capital city Pyongyang last week for a meeting with the child dictator Kim Jong-un.

World International Affairs North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un traveled to his country's up-and-coming coastal resort area to offer instruction for what he hopes will be a sign of his country's resilience under extensive international sanctions. The official Korean Central News Agency published photos Friday of Kim, his wife Ri Sol Ju along with top military and political leaders visiting the Wonsan-Kalma tourist area on the country's east coast. Kim has long envisioned turning the city into a hotspot for locals and foreigners looking to hit the beach and enjoy luxury hotels, but appeared to postpone the project during his latest visit from a projected date of April 15, his grandfather's birthday, to October 10, the anniversary of the founding of the ruling Korean Workers' Party.
