North Korea arrests two South Korean men for 'spying'

  • The two South Koreans have been arrested on charges of spying. According to a statement, the state media said that the arrested men were based in Dandong, a Chinese border town, and their activities were aimed at smearing North Korea.

    Seoul said that the claims were “groundless” and called for the duo's "quick release and repatriation”.

    In 2014, North Korea sentenced South Korea's Kim Jong-uk to life for spying and carrying out prohibited religious activities.
