American tourist detained in North Korea

  • A 24-year-old American man has been detained in North Korea for behaving in an appropriate manner while he was being processed to enter the nation. 

    The man has been identified as Miller Matthew Todd and reports suggest that he entered North Korea on a tourist visa on April 10 but tore it up and claimed he wanted asylum. 

    No further details were revealed but New Jersey-based Uri Tours said it's been "working closely and continuously with all relevant government and diplomatic entities to resolve this matter in a speedy and favorable manner."
