  1. North Korea Claims to be Holding American Tourist

    North Korea’s state-run news agency is reporting that the secretive nation has detained a U.S. citizen who entered the country as a tourist. The detainee is reportedly a man named Jeffrey Edward Fowle who allegedly acted “contrary to the purpose of tourism” after he entered the country in April. A Japanese news agency says the man was part of a tour group and apparently left a Bible in a hotel room. U.S. officials have declined to provide any further information.
