Matthew Miller to be tried next Sunday: KCNA

Announcement of trial comes less than a week after interview pleading for help

The state-run Korean Central News Agency has announced that American Matthew Miller is to be tried next Sunday on undisclosed charges.

Miller, 24, attracted international attention in April when KCNA reports said that he, upon entering the North, destroyed his tourist visa and announced his intention to seek asylum. State media reported the incident in late April, two weeks after it reportedly took place.
