North Korea 'moves three American prisoners to hotel' ahead of imminent release - reports

North Korea has moved three American prisoners from a labour camp to a hotel ahead of the planned summit with the US, a South Korean activist said.
Academics Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, and businessman Kim Dong Chul were moved this week to a hotel on the outskirts of Pyongyang following instructions from "superior authorities", campaigner Choi Sung Yong is reported to have said.

They are getting "health treatment" and "ideological education", he added.

A South Korean official is reported to have said their release has been negotiated over the past two months and is "imminent".

The trio, who are not related, were imprisoned in 2016 and 2017 after being accused of espionage or "hostile acts".
