China arrests US aid worker near North Korean border

“A Korean-American aid worker running a school in a Chinese city near North Korea has been arrested on charges of embezzlement and possession of fake invoices, his lawyer said Friday, in a sign that authorities are increasingly sensitive about activities by foreigners in the border region.

Shanghai-based lawyer Zhang Peihong said he was notified by prosecutors in China’s northeastern Yanbian prefecture of the arrest of Peter Hahn, a 74-year-old Christian who ran a vocational school for Chinese and Korean youth for more than a decade in the border town of Tumen.”
