SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) - News reports say an American journalist is being held by the North Korean military near the country’s border with China.

A report Thursday in the Munhwa Ilbo newspaper says the female reporter was detained near the river dividing the North Korean border town of Sinuiju and the Chinese city of Dandong.

The report cites unnamed diplomatic sources in Seoul as saying North Korean soldiers detained her on Tuesday.

The South Korean network YTN says she’s a Korean-American reporter for online media. The U.S. Embassy in Seoul and the South Korean Foreign Ministry say they have no information about the reported incident.
