American Detained

Kenneth Bae, right, an American man detained in North Korea for the past 11 months, and his mother Myunghee Bae talk each other during their meeting at a hospital in Pyongyang Friday, Oct. 11, 2013. For the first time since he was sentenced eleven months ago to 15 years of hard labor in North Korea, the Korean-American Christian missionary and tour operator has had a visit today from his mother. She later told Japan's Kyodo News agency that Kenneth Bae's health has gotten better since he was transferred to a hospital from a prison where he was serving his sentence. But he told her that his condition is still not good. (AP Photo/The Choson Sinbo, Mun Kwang Son)
