Kim Jong Un goes for surprise nighttime walk ahead of summit
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un went for a surprise stroll in Singapore on Monday night, just hours before he was due to take part in a landmark summit with US President Donald Trump.
Surrounded by a phalanx of bodyguards, his face lit up occasionally by the flashes from cameras, Kim was seen taking in the sights and sounds of the city-state as he walked along a downtown street.
Earlier in the evening, Kim’s motorcade was spotted departing the St. Regis Hotel, where the leader is staying during the highly-anticipated summit.
His late-night destination appeared to be another luxury hotel on the island: the Marina Bay Sands — a 55-floor hotel and entertainment mecca with an infinity pool, lookout point, and the Ce La Vi bar and restaurant on the rooftop.
Singapore’s Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted a selfie with Kim on the surprise walkabout late Monday.
