Exactly two weeks after North Korea arrested Tony Kim, a Korean-American professor in his 50s at Pyongyang International Airport as he was leaving North Korea, Kim Jong-Un has again provoked the US and overnight North Korea detained another U.S. citizen tied to the Christian-backed university in Pyongyang. According to the report issued on Sunday by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency, Kim Hak-song was arrested for committing “hostile acts”, and works for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), a university founded in 2010 by James Kim, a Korean-American Christian businessman.
“A relevant institution of the DPRK detained American citizen Kim Hak Song on May 6 under a law of the DPRK on suspension of his hostile acts against it,”KCNA said.
Separately, and in keeping up with the recent belligerent rhetoric out of N.Korea, the country again threatened to nuke the White House and reduce it to ashes as Kim Jong-un’s regime bragged the days of the US are now “over” adding “this is a stern warning to the US imperialists and their stooges running amuck for aggression and war moves.”
The threat was unveiled in an editorial published by KNCA, in which Pyongyang slammed President Donald Trump’s decision to dispatch its naval fleet to the Korean Peninsula. The op-ed vowed it would be victorious over an enemy made up of “murderous ogres”, “robbers”, “air pirates” and “warriors who master the occult arts”, according to the Express.
