North Korea detains third U.S. citizen: Yonhap
SEOUL North Korea detained a U.S. citizen on Friday, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported, bringing the total number of Americans held by the isolated country to three.
MOSCOW The Kremlin complained on Friday that the mingling of so-called moderate rebels with Nusra Front fighters on the ground in Syria made it hard to distinguish between the two when it came to targeting air strikes.
Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, made the remarks when asked to comment on allegations from a senior unnamed U.S. defense official who accused Russian forces in Syria of bombing U.S.-backed rebels.
"Our air force operation is continuing in Syria," Peskov told reporters on a conference call.
"It is not a secret for anyone that the continuing mingling in places of the so-called moderate opposition with Al-Nusra is a really serious problem.
"It really is complicating anti-terrorist action," he said, referring to Russia's campaign of air strikes in Syria.
