WASHINGTON, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Former U.N. Ambassador Bill Richardson delivered a letter for an imprisoned American to officials in North Korea during his trip there this week.
Richardson was unable meet with Korean-American Kenneth Bae, a 44-year-old tourist who was detained in North Korea late last year, but he said he was able to give a letter from Bae's son to authorities.
"I delivered the letter to North Korean officials," Richardson told Reuters on Friday. "They said they would provide that to him."
