An American missionary has arrived in Beijing after being freed by North Korea, which had detained him for illegally crossing its border from China on Christmas Day.
U.S. consular officials escorted Robert Park as left the North Korean plane Saturday at Beijing's airport.
U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Susan Stevenson says Park will leave later in the day for the U.S.
On Friday, North Korea announced it would free Park, saying he had shown "sincere repentance."
Park, 28, slipped across the frozen Tumen River into North Korea carrying letters calling on leader Kim Jong Il to close the country's notoriously brutal prison camps and step down from power _ acts that could risk a death sentence in the totalitarian nation.
