N. Korea sentences U.S. man to prison

FILE - In this Wed., Feb. 13, 2013 file photo, a South Korean protester shouts slogans near an effigy of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during an anti-North Korea rally to denounce North Korea's nuclear test in Seoul, South Korea, a day after North Korea defied U.N. warnings with a nuclear test. The Cold War still rages in North Korea, and enemy No. 1 is the United States, which Pyongyang blames for making necessary its much-condemned drive to build nuclear weapons. North Korea’s latest nuclear test in February - its third - has led even China, its only major ally, to support a new round of U.N. sanctions. A draft resolution is expected to be circulated this week at the U.N. The West condemns the North's nuclear bombs as a serious threat to Northeast Asia's delicate security and a drain on precious resources that could go to North Korea's largely destitute people.
