North Korea changed its mind Friday and pulled back an invitation for a U.S. diplomat to visit and discuss the plight and possible release of a Washington man imprisoned, sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.
North Korea freed an American it held for a half year for reportedly proselytizing, handing him Saturday to a U.S. envoy who said Washington had not promised to provide aid in exchange for the man's release.
A U.S. government team was in North Korea on a rare trip Tuesday to assess food shortages, while the country's reclusive leader Kim Jong-il reportedly traveled to an eastern Chinese city to study Beijing's economic reforms.
