North Korea detains another American

North Korea notified the U.S. that it has another American in custody for allegedly entering the country illegally, the State Department announced Friday.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the North Koreans, in a bare-bones message through their representative at U.N. headquarters in New York, provided no identifying information about the detainee, including the name or gender, or details of the alleged offense.
