United States planning to kill Kim Jong-un - North Korea claims

The country's official news agency reported Sunday that Kim Hak-song was arrested on charges of committing "hostile acts".

North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency said that Kim Hak Song had worked for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology before he was held on Saturday.

North Korea's state media says it has detained another USA citizen for suspicion of acts against the state.

"We are aware of reports that a United States citizen was detained in North Korea", the statement said.

The others are Otto Warmbier, serving a 15-year prison term with hard labour for alleged anti-state acts, and Kim Dong Chul, serving 10 years with hard labour for alleged espionage. Much of the costs of the University is funded by USA and South Korea Christian charities.

"The security of USA citizens is one of the department's highest priorities". "Due to privacy considerations, we have no further comment‎".

In the paranoid universe of North Korea, the feverish accusations it makes against its sworn enemies bear a creepy resemblance to its own misdeeds.

Relations between the US and North Korea have grown more strained in recent months as Pyongyang conducts nuclear and ballistic missile tests in defiance of worldwide bans.

The detentions follow North Korean threats of a new nuclear test prompting the U.S. to send a warship to the region.
