FILE - In this Nov. 27, 1996 file photo, American Evan C. Hunzik, right, shakes hands with then-U.S. Rep. Bill Richardson, D-N.M., upon their arrival at Yokota Air Base, outskirts of Tokyo, following his release from North Korea after negotiations involving Richardson. Hunziker entered the North by swimming across the Yalu River, which marks the border with China. Hunziker, who apparently made the swim on a drunken dare, was accused of spying and detained for three months. South Korean border guards arrested an American man who they believe was attempting to swim across the border into rival North Korea, a South Korean defense official said Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014.
