North Korea Says It Has Detained a U.S. Citizen

“North Korean state media said Friday that authorities have detained a U.S. citizen for ‘hostile acts’ against the country. The terse statement, just two sentences long, didn’t specify the alleged crimes, saying merely that while on a tour of North Korea, Jeffrey Edward Fowle committed acts that violated the country’s laws. He entered the country on April 29, the report said, and remains under investigation.”
