North Korea to indict US citizen on coup charges

27 April 2013 Last updated at 09:14 BST

A US citizen is soon to go on trial on charges including attempting to overthrow North Korea's government, the North's official news agency says.

KCNA says that Pae Jun-Ho has admitted the charges, without specifying when the trial will start.

Pae Jun-Ho, who is known in the US as Kenneth Bae, was held last year after entering North Korea as a tourist.

Lucy Williamson reports from South Korea.
