North Korea's reclusive leader Kim Jong Il was in China Thursday on his second visit this year to his country's biggest source of diplomatic and financial support, according to teachers at a school he visited.

The visit, which has not been announced by either country, is highly unusual, coming just three months after the last visit of Kim, who rarely travels and when he does goes by train. It came particularly as a surprise because former US President Jimmy Carter is in North Korea and many had speculated he would meet the leader.But his stop in Jilin city in Jilin province in northeastern China was confirmed by two teachers at the Yuwen Middle School.
