U.S. citizen detained in North Korea

By Associated Press

POSTED:



STOCKHOLM >> Sweden's Foreign Ministry says an American citizen was arrested in North Korea and that Swedish diplomats are representing the U.S. in the case.

Ministry spokesman Teo Zetterman says "an American citizen has been detained in North Korea. That's all we can say."

He told the AP on Tuesday that Sweden is dealing with North Korean authorities on behalf of the U.S. in the case. Zetterman wouldn't give the name of the American citizen or discuss the circumstances or date of the American's arrest, referring questions to the U.S. State Department.

The Swedish Embassy in Pyongyang represents the United States because the U.S. doesn't have diplomatic relations with North Korea.
