North Korea Threatens To Sink U.S. Ship, Arrests U.S. Citizen
Once again the leader of North Korea threatens to sink a U.S. Ship, and arrests a U.S. Citizen.
North Korea threatened Sunday to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military prowess as two Japanese Navy ships joined a U.S. strike group for exercises in the Philippine Sea.
The Korean leader also detained an American, according to Park Chan-mo, the chancellor of the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, is Tony Kim, who also goes by his Korean name Kim Sang-duk. He is the third American detained in a few years. Many say it will be very difficult to resolve this matter because tensions are at an all time high between the United States and North Korea.
Park said Kim, who is in his 50s, taught accounting at the university for about a month. He said Kim was detained by officials as he was trying to leave the country from Pyongyang’s international airport.
