S Koreans meet N Korea's Kim Jong-un

Two prominent South Koreans have met North Korea's incoming leader, Kim Jong-un, in Pyongyang.

The two visitors are in the notoriously secretive nation to pay their respects to the country's former leader, Kim Jong-il, who died earlier this month.

They are the only South Koreans being allowed to visit the Communist state.
