Freed North Korean Detainee Returns Home to United States

Greeted by family in Ohio


A US citizen released from detention in North Korea has been greeted to an emotional homecoming in Ohio.

An aircraft transporting Jeffrey Fowle, 56, landed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base early on Wednesday.

Mr Fowle was greeted by his wife, children and relatives upon arrival.

A US state department official said the agency was working to secure the release of two other US nationals, Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae, who remain in detention in North Korea.
