North Korea has informed the United States it is holding a second U.S. citizen, the State Department said on Friday.

The spokesman said the United States did not know the U.S. citizen’s identity and was seeking access to him through Sweden, which represents U.S. interests in North Korea because Washington and Pyongyang do not have diplomatic relations.
