South Korean soldiers guard the village of Panmunjom in the Joint Security Area

North Korea reportedly detained an American soldier across the heavily fortified border from South Korea without an entry permit.

The soldier was on an organized tour of the UN-administered area, which lies between the two countries.

The incident comes at a time of tense relations with North Korea, one of the world’s most isolated countries. American citizens are usually advised not to go there.

A senior US military commander said there had been no contact with the soldier.
