North Korea Detains Another American Citizen

Pyongyang detained the former for stealing a political poster.

1am BST: Kim Jong-un has continued his sabre-rattling with an astonishing outburst against USA. Within the university, all of the classes are in English and many of teachers are American.

The latest arrest came days after American officials pressed the United Nations for stronger sanctions to thwart North Korea's nuclear weapons ambitions.

A Kushner Companies spokeswoman declined to comment in a "New York Times" article about the Beijing event published on Saturday. Experts were quite skeptical about the claims.

North Korean authorities detained a USA citizen by the name of Kim Hak-song on Saturday, according to reports by the state-run news agency KCNA on Sunday.
