North Korea US American Detained
Kenneth Bae, right, an American man detained in North Korea for the past 11 months, and his mother Myunghee Bae embrace each other during their meeting at a hospital in Pyongyang Friday, Oct. 11, 2013. For the first time since he was sentenced eleven months ago to 15 years of hard labor in North Korea, the Korean-American Christian missionary and tour operator has had a visit today from his mother. She later told Japan's Kyodo News agency that Kenneth Bae's health has gotten better since he was transferred to a hospital from a prison where he was serving his sentence. But he told her that his condition is still not good. (AP Photo/The Choson Sinbo, Mun Kwang Son) NO SALES, NO ARCHIVING, ONE TIME USE ONLY, CREDIT MANDATORY
