WASHINGTON (AP) — Two U.S. officials say CIA Director Mike Pompeo recently traveled to North Korea to meet with leader Kim Jong Un.

Pompeo’s trip to the isolated communist nation came in advance of a potential summit between Kim and President Donald Trump.

The officials spoke anonymously about Pompeo’s trip because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly.
