Kim Jong-un impersonator held

Singapore, June 8: A Hong Kong-based man who impersonates North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said on Friday that immigration authorities at the Singapore airport detained him for two hours. “They searched my bags and then told me that this is a very sensitive time to be in Singapore and that I should stay away from the Sentosa Island as well as the Shangri-La hotel in the town,” the man named Howard X said in a Facebook post. However, Howard was not deported and said that he, along with another person acting as US President Donald Trump, would hold a presentation on Saturday and Sunday in Singapore, reports Efe news. The two places — the Sentosa Island and Shangri-La hotel — have been designated as “special events zone” with the aim of beefing up security ahead of a summit meeting between Trump and Kim on June 12.
