North Korea 'holds US reporters'


news.bbc.co.uk

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.

The North has angered the US by planning a missile launch for April as part of its space communications programme.

The US believes the launch is intended to test a rocket that could potentially carry a warhead as far as US territory.

According to the article there are conflicting stories as some reports say the reporters were taken from two different areas hundreds of miles apart. However, the North Koreans might use these reporters as leverage against the United States and South Korea, trying to stop them from intercepting the missile the North Koreans plan to launch on April.
