BEIJING- An American citizen detained in North Korea on unspecified charges for the past six months has been released, US rights envoy Robert King said on Saturday following a visit to the secretive state's capital to assess its pleas for food aid.

Japan's Kyodo news agency said Jun Young Su had accompanied King, but there was no overt sign at Beijing airport of the released US citizen and King did not give details.

"We are very happy to report that Mr. Jun, the American citizen being held in Pyongyang, has been released. We are also delighted that in a day or two he will be back with his wife and family," King said upon arrival in the Chinese capital.
