Jimmy Carter to visit NKorea to free US man | AFP

WASHINGTON — Former US president Jimmy Carter plans to visit North Korea soon on a mission to secure the release of an American man serving eight years of hard labor there, Foreign Policy magazine said.

The White House declined to confirm the trip, but a senior administration official, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity, said “anyone going would do so as a private humanitarian effort.”

The United States has repeatedly voiced concern about the health of Aijalon Mahli Gomes, who was jailed for illegally crossing the country’s border with China.
