North Korea is preparing to bring two American tourists to trial for what it says were hostile acts committed toward the country.

Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency said Monday that Miller Matthew Todd and Jeffrey Edward Fowle were arrested in April after entering the country as tourists and suspicions about their hostile acts have been confirmed by evidence and through their testimonies.

The news agency did not specify what crimes were committed by the two Americans.
