Foreign media  to witness nuke site destruction

BEIJING: Foreign journalists headed to North Korea yesterday to witness the promised destruction of its nuclear test site, a move seen as a goodwill gesture before a planned summit with the United States, reports AFP.

Dozens of reporters from China, the United States and Russia departed on a charter flight from Beijing, according to Chinese state broadcaster CGTN which is part of the contingent. It showed the journalists board a small plane emblazoned with the North’s flag.

Agence France-Presse and some other major media organisations were not invited to cover the event.
