Singapore abuzz with preparations for Trump-Kim summit

It was on, then off, but now that the highly anticipated meeting is confirmed for June 12 in Singapore, is the country ready?

In just eight days’ time, the eyes of the world will be on Singapore.

The city state will host the historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

While excitement is building, the high stakes nature of the event means secrecy surrounds much of the planning.
