U.S. media outlets report on kidnapped American man in Pyongyang

Monday’s Sankei wrote that a number of U.S. media outlets, including CNN, have reported that David Sneddon, who went missing in China in August 2004, was apparently abducted and taken to North Korea by DPRK agents. Citing a Kyodo story that reported on remarks made by a representative of a South Korean activist group, the American news organizations claimed that he is married to a local woman, has two children, and is working in Pyongyang as an English teacher. Noting that a congressional motion has been submitted calling for the USG to start investigations into the Sneddon case, Sankei expressed hope that the surge in U.S. media interest in his case may have positive effects on Japan’s desire to resolve the abductions of Japanese nationals.
