Australian Student Arrested in North Korea out of Contact Since Tuesday

The family of an Australian man reportedly detained in North Korea say they have not heard from him since Tuesday, but that they have not received confirmation that he has been arrested by the repressive regime. Reports emerged on Thursday that Alek Sigley, a 29-year-old living and studying in Pyongyang, had been arrested in North Korea. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed it was providing consular support to the man’s family, and was “urgently seeking clarification” about Sigley’s whereabouts.
