S Korea pastor held after unauthorised trip to N Korea

A South Korean preacher has made a highly unusual homecoming, by stepping across the border with the North.

The Reverend Han Sang-yol, a prominent clergyman, was returning to his native South Korea after an unauthorised two-month visit to the North.

He was cheered off by dozens of North Korean supporters, but he faces harsh criticism in the South, and was arrested on his arrival.

John Sudworth reports.
