The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) recently detained four South Koreans who illegally entered the country, the official KCNA news agency said on Friday.

The report said the four were under investigation by the relevant institution, but didn't give any details.

U.S. missionary Robert Park was detained in the country on Dec. 25 months after Pyongyang freed two American journalists who had been arrested in March and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor.

The 28-year-old Park was released on Feb. 5 by the DPRK based on his "admission and sincere repentance of his wrongdoings," according to the KCNA.
