US National Detained After Crossing Military Demarcation Line into North Korea

A US national is believed to have been detained after crossing the Military Demarcation Line into North Korea during a Joint Security Area tour, the United Nations Command said in a tweet on Tuesday.

According to the UNC, the individual, who was on a JSA orientation tour, crossed the Military Demarcation Line without authorization and entered the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The UNC is currently working with their counterparts in the Korean People’s Army (KPA) to resolve the incident and secure the individual’s release.

The JSA orientation tour, organized by the UNC, allows the general public to visit the Joint Security Area located inside the Demilitarized Zone between South and North Korea.
