North Korean soldiers have detained at least one Korean-American journalist near the North's border with China, South Korean media say.
YTN TV channel quotes a South Korean official as saying two reporters were held after being asked to stop filming.
Other reports say one female journalist was arrested.
It is not yet clear who the journalists were working for. The reports come amid heightened tension between the US and North Korea.

If you ask me, what they did is the same thing as taking hostages.
Why did they arrest this person? What charge? Last time I checked, I didnt think "being a camera man/woman reporting on facts" was an offense?
