North Korea: Detained American Tried to Overthrow Government

North Korea on Wednesday accused a U.S. citizen it arrested last month of attempting to overthrow its government. Kim Sang Dok, an American professor who was teaching at the Pyongyang University for Science and Technology, was arrested at the capital city’s airport on April 22, and has since been accused of committing “criminal acts of hostility.” A source told The Wall Street Journal that Kim’s wife has returned to the U.S. Kim is the third American being held by North Korea. The U.S. works with the Swedish embassy in Pyongyang for diplomatic issues involving North Korea because the U.S. and the DPRK have no formal relations.
