US Officials Say Travis King, Who Crossed into North Korea, Is in American Custody

  • North Korea has announced that it will expel a US soldier who entered the country illegally through the heavily armed border between North and South Korea. The soldier, Travis King, had joined a civilian tour of a border village but instead crossed the border and was subsequently detained by North Korean authorities.
  • After several weeks of silence, North Korea confirmed in August that they had detained King and were investigating the circumstances surrounding his border crossing. They concluded that he had crossed intentionally and illegally, with the intention of staying in North Korea or a third country.
  • King had been due to return to the United States after being released from prison in South Korea, following an assault conviction. However, he instead crossed into North Korea, becoming the first American in nearly five years to be detained by the country.
