In the news wrap Wednesday, three detainees are on their way home to the U.S. after being held in North Korea. The Korean-Americans were freed ahead of a planned summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump. Also, a war monitoring group says an airstrike in Syria killed at least 15 people. The targets were weaponry that likely belonged to Iran's Revolutionary Guard, the group said.
