Kim Jong-un might have visited China secretly, armored train sparks speculations
An armored train in China is said to have transported North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un, prompting speculations that he is in Beijing for talks. Photos of the train circulated online on various social media platforms. There was also a large security presence at a Beijing guesthouse where North Korean leaders have previously stayed. However, it has not been confirmed yet whether it is, in fact, the North Korean autocrat on board the train, though the security suggests it would be a very high-level official. There has been a spike in police activity in Beijing recently, especially around the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, where foreign dignitaries usually stay, with a large number of officers and several vehicles seen in the area. Nearby roads have been cordoned off.
