US schoolboy to visit North Korea


A 13-year-old American schoolboy is hoping to go where few senior US politicians have been before, to North Korea for a meeting with the country's leader.

Jonathan Lee, who was born in South Korea, wrote to Kim Jong-Il outlining his plans for a "children's peace forest" in the demilitarised zone between the two countries.

Lee believes his project would give "hope to the people and children around the world".

Jon Sudworth reports from Seoul.
