North Korea Puts US Tourist on Trial

BBC – North Korea says it will put two detained US tourists on trial, accusing them of “committing hostile acts”.

Miller Todd and Jeffrey Fowle have been investigated and will be brought before a court, the state news agency KCNA reported.

It said that suspicions about the two men had been confirmed by evidence and the pair’s own statements, but gave no further details.

A US-Korean missionary, Kenneth Bae, is currently serving a 15-year sentence.

He was arrested in November 2012 and later convicted of trying to overthrow the North Korean government.

Jeffrey Fowle entered North Korea on 29 April and was detained in early June as he was leaving the country, according to North Korean reports.
