North Korea has detained another American citizen for being suspected of “hostile acts” against the state. Kim Hak-song had taught at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, the same university where another detained American, Kim Sang-duck had also taught. Four U.S. citizens are currently detained in North Korea.
From The BBC:
The detention comes amid heightened tensions between North Korea and the US.
Pyongyang has threatened to carry out a new nuclear test – while the US has sent a warship to the region and vowed to stop the North from developing nuclear weapons.
On Friday, North Korea accused US and South Korean agents of plotting to kill its Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un.
The US and South Korean governments did not comment on the allegations, but experts were sceptical about the claim.
