Kim Jong Il was reported to be visiting China on Friday, the third trip in 12 months for the reclusive North Korean leader. The luxuriously equipped and well-armored private train in which Kim travels was spotted crossing into the Chinese border town of Tumen on Friday morning, according to South Korean news media. Early dispatches said the train was carrying Kim Jong Eun, the leader's youngest son and presumed successor.

South Korean intelligence sources were quoted as saying the senior Kim was spending the night in Mudanjiang, a small city in the northern Chinese province of Heilongjiang, which borders Russia.
