A Swedish diplomat acting on behalf of the United States has visited two American journalists being held in the Democratic People's Repbulic of Korea (DPRK), State Department deputy spokesman Gordon Duguid said here Monday.

"It was over the weekend. A representative of the Swedish embassy met with each one individually," Duguid told reporters.

But no whereabouts of the American detainees and details about their condition are available.

The DPRK said it detained two Americans on March 17 as they were "illegally intruding into the territory of the DPRK by crossing the DPRK-China border."

Pyongyang "has assured us that the detainees will be well treated," State Department deputy spokesman Robert Wood said last week.
