N Korean leader 'goes to China'

China has hosted six-nation talks on
the continuing nuclear stand-off

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is reported to have gone to Beijing for a meeting with President Hu Jintao.

South Korean television quoted Chinese sources as saying that a train carrying Mr Kim and his entourage was expected to arrive in Beijing on Monday.

China is a key mediator in the row over North Korea's nuclear programme.

Talks have made little progress on how the programme could be dismantled, or how North Korea's energy and security concerns would be addressed.

If confirmed, the North Korean leader's four-day visit to Pyongyang's old communist ally would be his first since May 2001.
