President greets former North Korea detainees

Posted: Updated:

A military plane carrying three Americans freed from captivity in North Korea has arrived at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington. President Donald Trump is on hand to greet them.
   A Boeing C-40 outfitted with medical facilities arrived at the base at 2:42 a.m., carrying Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, who were released to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about 20 hours earlier.
   Pompeo was in Pyongyang to discuss Trump's plans to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in the coming weeks. He returned on a separate plane, joining Trump, first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on the tarmac.
   The three former detainees will be transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for further evaluation and medical treatment.
