Trump cancels Kim summit amid North Korea 'hostility'.


US President Donald Trump has cancelled a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, blaming "tremendous anger and open hostility" from the North. He said it was possible a meeting could still take place but warned North Korea against committing "foolish" acts. The summit aimed to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons and would have been the first time a sitting US president met a North Korean leader. The "unexpected" decision, Pyongyang said, was "extremely regrettable".
