State news agency: North Korea to deport U.S. citizen detained since October

North Korea has decided to deport a U.S. citizen detained since October, Reuters reports referring to the state news agency KCNA.

The American, whom the agency identified as Bruce Byron Lowrance, “illegally” entered North Korea from China and told his captors he was “under the control of the CIA”, it said.

A Michigan man of the same name was deported from South Korea in November 2017 after being found wandering near the heavily fortified border with North Korea, but there was no immediate confirmation of his identity.
