North Korea rejects South Korea's message on detainee Updated: 2014-02-28 21:56:26 KST

We begin with the latest on a South Korean captive in North Korea.
Seoul's unification ministry says North Korea has so far refused to accept a message regarding a South Korean missionary who has been detained by the North since October.
The ministry said it tried on Friday afternoon to send a message urging Pyongyang to release Kim Jeong-uk and to ensure his safety until repatriation.
North Korea released video footage Thursday of a press conference in which Kim claimed to be a South Korean spy.
Kim said he entered North Korea four months ago with the aim of buiding an underground church in the North Korean capital.
