North Korea ‘Detains US Citizen’ as Tensions Mount Over Nuclear Tests

North Korea claims it has detained another American citizen for suspicion of acts against the state, which if confirmed would make him the fourth US citizen to be held by the isolated country amid fierce diplomatic tensions with US over the North’s nuclear programme.

Kim Hak Song, who was detained on 6 May, worked for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, the North’s KCNA news agency said.

“A relevant institution of the DPRK detained American citizen Kim Hak Song on May 6 under a law of the DPRK on suspension of his hostile acts against it,” KCNA said.
