US calls for N Korea amnesty for sentenced American

Published: 05.03.13, 00:56 / Israel News

The US called Thursday for North Korea to grant amnesty and immediately release a Korean-American sentenced to 15 years' hard labor for "hostile acts" against the state.

 

Kenneth Bae, 44, a Washington state man is at least the sixth American detained in North Korea since 2009. The others were deported or released without serving out their terms, some after trips to Pyongyang by prominent Americans, including former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Analysts say Bae's sentencing could be an effort by Pyongyang to win diplomatic concessions in the ongoing standoff over its nuclear program. (AP)
