North Korea detains fourth American

Pyongyang, North Korea (CNN) – North Korea appears to have detained another U.S citizen for the second time in two weeks.

State media says Kim Hak Song was taken into custody on Saturday, suspected of hostile acts toward the regime.

He was working in agricultural development at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.

Last month, another American who taught at the same school was also detained.

Four Americans are currently being held in North Korea.
