      Jailed American appears before reporters in North Korea

      PYONGYANG, North Korea - An American missionary held by North Korea for more than a year has appeared in what he called a news conference.

      Kenneth Bae was under guard as he appealed to the U.S. government to help secure his release.

      Bae said in Korean, "I believe that my problem can be solved by close cooperation and agreement between the American government and the government of this country."
