North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has arrived in Vietnam ahead of a summit with US President Donald Trump.
The second US-North Korea summit follows a historic first round of talks last year in Singapore.
Ceremonial guards and flag-waving crowds had lined a red carpet laid out for him as he arrived at Dong Dang border station in the morning.
He then took a car in the capital city of Hanoi where heavy security and flag-waving crowds were waiting for him.
At Dong Dang security guards, officials and cameramen crowded Mr Kim and his party as they disembarked from the train and were ushered into a waiting car.
His trademark team of black-suited bodyguards were waiting for him at the station, and as his car pulled away they briefly ran alongside it.
He is thought travelling with his sister Kim Yo-jong and one of his key negotiators, former General Kim Yong-chol, both familiar faces from the last summit with Mr Trump. bbc
