North Korea claims to have 'arrested US man' for unspecified crime
North Korea has claimed to have arrested an American citizen for unspecified alleged crimes on November3.
According to the state-run media, Pae Jun Ho entered the country as a tourist.
Some reports from South Korea have said the man is a Korean American who operates a travel company and went to the North guiding a group of tourists, the BBC reports.
According to the report, State media said Pae Jun Ho was subject to criminal proceedings.
"In the process of investigation, evidence proving that he committed a crime against the DPRK was revealed. He admitted his crime," the state-run media said.
It also said the man had met officials from the Swedish embassy.
Sweden represents US interests in North Korea because Washington and Pyongyang do not have diplomatic relations.
