N. Korea Releases Bible-Toting American

American Jeffrey Fowle has been released from a North Korean prison camp and is on a flight home, the State Department announced Tuesday. Fowle was arrested for allegedly trying to leave a Bible at a sailors’ club in North Korea. Fowle had been terminated from his job as an equipment operator for the city of Moraine, Ohio, during captivity, but can have his job back, City Manager David Hicks told The Daily Beast. “The reinstatement opportunity is available to him. Assuming he wants to be reinstated, he will,” he said. “I’m sure that we’ll have some celebration upon his return.” Two other Americans, Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae, remained imprisoned in North Korea. The State Department said it is working on achieving their releases, as well.
