US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that three Americans detained by North Korea are on their way home with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the three wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.

Pompeo flew to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, early Wednesday to finalize details of a summit planned between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
