[quote=The Independent]Knowing North Korea’s reputation for kidnapping foreigners
[/quote]

There are widespread allegations that North Korea, for several decades, has sent agents to various countries to kidnap people. The victims would be secretly taken to North Korea, where they were to serve as tutors to help North Korean spies learn foreign languages and customs. North Korea would never acknowledge the presence of these persons, who were never allowed contact with anyone outside of North Korea.

In addition to the American mentioned in the OP, many believe the kidnap victims include people from Malaysia, Thailand, Romania, Lebanon, France, the Netherlands and Japan. Especially from Japan, where dozens or even hundreds may have been abducted.
