US: N.Korea confirms second American in custody

The U.S. State Department says that North Korea has notified the United States that it has another American in custody for allegedly entering the country illegally.
State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley says the North Koreans did not provide the name of the person they detained.
He says the United States, which has no formal diplomatic relations with North Korea, is seeking through the Swedish government to gain access to the detainee to verify the detainee's condition and learn details of the incident.
Sweden represents U.S. diplomatic interests in North Korea.
