PYONGYANG, April 25 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has put a U.S. tourist in custody while he was trying to enter the country, the official KCNA news agency reported Friday.

American Miller Matthew Todd, 24, was detained on April 10 "for his rash behavior in the course of going through formalities for entry into the DPRK to tour it", the report said.

He had a tourist visa for the DPRK, but tore it into pieces and shouted that "he would seek asylum" and "he came to the DPRK after choosing it as a shelter," it said.

This was a gross violation of the legal order of the DPRK, said the report. And investigation into the case was underway.
