North Korea Reportedly Executed Its Nuclear Envoy After the Failed Trump-Kim Summit
North Korea executed its former top nuclear envoy with the U.S. along with four other foreign ministry officials in March after a failed summit between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump in Vietnam, South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported.
据韩国《朝鲜日报》(Chosun Ilbo)报道，在金正恩(Kim Jong Un)和唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)在越南举行的峰会失败后，朝鲜在3月份处决了与美国的前核问题特使以及其他四名外交部官员。
Kim Hyok Chol, who led working-level negotiations for the February summit in Hanoi, was executed by firing squad after being charged with espionage for allegedly being co-opted by the U.S., the newspaper said, citing an unidentified source. The move was part of an internal purge Kim undertook after the summit broke down without any deal, it said.
该报援引未具名消息人士的话称，领导2月份河内峰会工作层面谈判的金孝哲(Kim Hyok Chol)因涉嫌被美国拉拢而被指控从事间谍活动，随后被行刑队处决。 声明称，此举是金在峰会失败后进行的内部清洗的一部分，没有达成任何协议。
Previous reports in South Korea media about senior North Korean officials being executed have proven false. Speculation has swirled for months about the fate of Kim Hyok Chol, who hasn’t received any mentions in state media reports.

Warriors ride big 3rd quarter to even NBA Finals series with Raptors
The two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors used a massive third quarter to overcame a sluggish start and secure a 109-104 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday that squared the NBA Finals at one game apiece.
这位两届卫冕冠军金州勇士在第三节表现出色，克服了开局不利的局面，并在周日以109-104战胜多伦多猛龙队，与 NBA 总决赛一决雌雄。
The resilient Warriors, in an unfamiliar position after losing their first Game One in five consecutive trips to the NBA Finals three days ago, opened the third quarter with an 18-0 run to grab a lead they would not relinquish.
Toronto led by as many as 12 points during a first half in which they used a dominant defensive display to slow down the Warriors but the visitors, well established as a terrific third-quarter team, rediscovered their swagger after the break.
Reds revel in 6th European title
MADRID (AP) — No tears of pain this time, just redemption for Mohamed Salah.
Only 108 seconds were needed to banish the Champions League final heartbreak of a year ago.
Once Salah dispatched his early penalty against Tottenham, Liverpool was on the path to a sixth European title with a 2-0 victory on Saturday.
And a year after defeat in the final to Real Madrid, Juergen Klopp has his first title after four years as Liverpool manager.
Imperial couple undertake 1st official duty outside Tokyo
OWARI-ASAHI, Aichi Prefecture--Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako attended an annual tree-planting ceremony in central Japan on June 2, their first official duty outside Tokyo since Naruhito’s ascension last month.
The tree-planting ceremony is one of four key national events that the emperor and empress attend. The other festivals are connected with sports, culture and healthy oceans.
“It is an important mission for us to grow healthy forests for future generations,” Naruhito said in his address during the 70th event held in this city's Aichi Prefecture Forest Park.
It was the first address given by an emperor at the national tree-planting ceremony since 2009, when the aging Akihito, Naruhito’s father who is now emperor emeritus, stopped doing so as a step to reduce his work burden.
The couple, who arrived in Nagoya on June 1, was greeted with crowds of flag-waving well-wishers wherever they went.
