North Korea has confirmed that it had arrested a US citizen in November, saying he had admitted to unspecified charges and suggesting he would be formally prosecuted.
The man, identified as Pae Jun-Ho, entered North Korea on November 3 as a tourist, and "committed a crime" against the country, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Friday.
"In the process of investigation, evidence proving that he committed a crime against the DPRK was revealed. He admitted his crime," the agency said in a short despatch.
"Legal actions are being taken against Pae in line with the criminal procedure law", it added, without elaborating.
