North Korea has crossed the line again, this time threatening to “ruthlessly punish” U.S. citizens that they have unlawfully detained.


The dangerous threat comes on the heels of the announcement that they detained a fourth U.S. citizen for unspecified “acts of hostility aimed at overthrowing the country.”

Also detained are Otto Warmbier who is serving a 15-year prison term with hard labor for alleged anti-state acts, Kim Dong Chul who is serving a 10-year term with hard labor for alleged espionage and Tony Kim, a Korean-American professor who taught accounting for a month at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.


Jason Kopp at Fox News reports that Pyongyang’s state-run media, KCNA news agency, said the crimes committed by the most recent detainees would soon be disclosed, adding that U.S. statements that the arrests are simply being used as a bargaining chip for North Korea are “pure ignorance.”

“Recent Americans detained are being interrogated by relevant legal authorities for criminal acts against the Republic,” said KCNA, according to the NY Post.


The news agency went on to say “it is an exercise of the legitimate right of a sovereign state to deal with the criminals according to its law.” Recent reports say the reason they will punish criminals is so the republic can “reliably defend its state and social system.”

A State Department official told Fox News that Americans should be aware of the risks involved when traveling to North Korea.

“U.S. citizens in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are at serious risk of arrest and long-term detention under North Korea’s system of law enforcement,” the officials said. “The U.S. government has no diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea; we have no means to provide normal consular services to U.S. citizens there.”

The State Department was unable to comment specifically on the cases of the four Americans who have allegedly been arrested by the North Korean government.

“In regards to reports of recently detained U.S. citizens,” the State Department said, “we have no further comment due to privacy considerations.”

Meanwhile, North Korea on Friday accused U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and South Korean intelligence services of plotting to assassinate dictator Kim Jong Un with a “biochemical substance.”

The North’s Ministry of State Security released a statement saying “the last-ditch effort” of U.S. “imperialists” and the South had gone “beyond the limits,” Reuters reports.

“The Central Intelligence Agency of the U.S. and the Intelligence Service (IS) of south Korea, hotbed of evils in the world, hatched a vicious plot to hurt the supreme leadership of the DPRK and those acts have been put into the extremely serious phase of implementation after crossing the threshold of the DPRK,” the North’s KCNA news agency quoted the statement as saying, referring to the North by its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“A hideous terrorists’ group, which the CIA and the IS infiltrated into the DPRK on the basis of covert and meticulous preparations to commit state-sponsored terrorism against the supreme leadership of the DPRK by use of bio-chemical substance, has been recently detected.”

KCNA said the two intelligence services “ideologically corrupted” and bribed a North Korean surnamed Kim and turned him into “a terrorist full of repugnance and revenge against the supreme leadership of the DPRK”.

“Then they handed him over $20,000 on two occasions and a satellite transmitter-receiver and let him get versed in it.”

“They hatched a plot of letting human scum Kim commit bomb terrorism targeting the supreme leadership during events at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun and at military parade and public procession after his return home,” KCNA said.

“They told him that assassination by use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance is the best method that does not require access to the target, their lethal results will appear after six or twelve months.”

The date of the alleged assassination attempt is unclear; however, Kim Jong Un presided over a military parade on April 15.

“Criminals going hell-bent to realize such a pipe dream cannot survive on this land even a moment,” KCNA said.
