(LONDON) — Travis King, the American soldier who two months ago crossed into North Korea, is back in U.S. custody, a U.S. official has confirmed.
North Korea announced earlier Wednesday that it would expel King, who ran across the border from South Korea during a tour in July.
“The relevant organ of the DPRK decided to expel Travis King, a soldier of the U.S. Army who illegally intruded into the territory of the DPRK, under the law of the Republic,” the North’s official Korean Central News Agency said.
