Is North Korea targeting a Pyongyang university for elites?

In the statement carried by Pyongyang's official news agency, KCNA, the unnamed spokesman said South Korea had hired a North Korean logger working in the Russian Far East, in 2014 to carry out "state-sponsored" terrorism.

He also backed U.S. President Donald Trump, who has warned of a "major conflict" with North Korea, and said that he would support Kim's government being toppled by force.

"The relevant authority is now carrying out a detailed investigation into the crime of Kim Hak-song", the state-run news agency said. He majored in agriculture and facilitated projects at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology to enhance the agriculture economy there.

The latest attempt happened just one day after North Korea announced that it has detained another USA citizen on charges of acting against its sovereignty, making him the fourth American national to be detained by Pyongyang over the past weeks.

According to The Washington Post, US citizen Kim Hak-song was taken in last Saturday due to suspicion of instigating "hostile acts" against the country.

Another US citizen has been detained in North Korea for suspected hostile acts against Pyongyang, authorities said on Sunday.

He begged for leniency, and then reportedly made a deal with Kim Jong Il, the late father of the country's current leader, that if his life was spared he would bring high-quality education to North Korea.

North Korea, which has been criticized for its human rights record, has in the past used detained Americans to extract high-profile visits from the United States, with which it has no formal diplomatic relations.

After weeks of fuming, how Trump fired Comey
That has led to speculation that Trump is considering replacing him. "We had a very nice dinner at the White House very early on". In this image provided by NBC News, President Donald Trump is interviewed by NBC's Lester Holt, Thursday, May 11, 2017.

Analysts pointed out that North Korea has repeatedly threatened many attacks on the US without following through.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has urged other Asian nations to pressure North Korea to dismantle its programs as well.

Both arrested are of Korean origin and had worked here as teachers.

The U.S. State Department would not attach any special meaning to the Track II dialogue, which is held semi-regularly.

The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved legislation on Thursday to tighten sanctions on North Korea by targeting its shipping industry and companies that do business with the reclusive state. In terms of detentions, North Korea is second only to Iran, where five Americans are now missing or detained. He was accused of stealing a propaganda poster, and North Korean officials released a video that purported to show him taking it.

"When you say the United States means what it says and it will do what it says it's going to do, it matters".

However, he adds that it could have taken North Korean security services a year or so to get their hands on a copy.
