` DPRK Detains United States Tourist in Course of Going Through Formalities for Entry into Country ‘

#AceWorldNews – PYONGYANG – April 26 – American Miller Matthew Todd, 24, was detained on April 10 “for his rash behaviour in the course of going through formalities for entry into the DPRK to tour it”, the official KCNA news agency reported Friday.

He had a tourist visa for the DPRK, but tore it into pieces and shouted that “he would seek asylum” and “he came to the DPRK after choosing it as a shelter,” it said.

This was a gross violation of the legal order of the DPRK, said the report.

And investigation into the case was under-way.
