SEOUL- South Korea demanded on Friday the immediate release of two of its citizens that North Korea said it had arrested, accusing them of spying for the South.

Late on Thursday, the North's official KCNA news agency showed images of two middle-aged men it identified as Kim Kuk Gi and Choe Chun Gil speaking at a news conference in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang.

It said the two men were South Korean nationals working as spies for Seoul's National Intelligence Service from the Chinese border city of Dandong.
