North Korea has confirmed to Swedish diplomats that it is holding an American citizen, the U.S. State Department said Friday. The State Department has declined to confirm the identity of the citizen, citing privacy issues. But the family of 85-year-old Merrill Newman of Palo Alto, California, has said he has been detained in North Korea since October 26. "We are working in close coordination with representatives of the Embassy of Sweden to resolve this issue and they also have requested on a daily basis consular access," State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told reporters.
