North Korea's military detained a US journalist near the country's northern border with China, reports said Thursday. The female reporter was detained in the region along the Yalu River dividing China and North Korea, the Munwha Ilbo newspaper said in Seoul. The report cited unnamed diplomatic sources in Seoul as saying North Korean soldiers took her into custody on Tuesday while she was trying to report from the Yalu River. The US Embassy in Seoul and the South Korean Foreign Ministry said they had no information about the reported incident. The paper identified her as a reporter named "Ming" working for a US television station. The South Korean network YTN identified her as a Korean-American working for online media.
