North Korea announced Friday that it has detained a U.S. citizen who it says entered the secretive country as a tourist in April and broke the law. The North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reported that authorities are investigating the man, who it said “carried out acts that were inappropriate for a tourist.” In its brief Korean-language report, KCNA gave the American’s name as Jeffery Edward Paole.
