Correspondent amongst North Koreans apprehended in China

The head of an anti-North Korean radio station in Seoul says his missing correspondent in the Chinese border city of Dandong was apprehended by North Korean security officials.

Kim Seong-min said that the 50-year-old North Korean defector was taken near the Yalu river on February 19 while waiting to meet his wife and son arriving from North Korea.

Kim said he believes the defector is one of four South Koreans who North Korea's state media has said illegally entered the North. The North's Korean Central News Agency reported on February 26 that four were under investigation, but did not identify them or say when they allegedly entered North Korea.
