North Korea detains 85-year old American tourist

The family of an 85-year-old year American war veteran says he is being held by the North Korean government.  Merrill Newman's son Jeff says his father was visiting North Korea as a tourist and was dragged off a plane just as he was about to leave the country. Merill Newman is not the only American detained in North Korea right now. Kenneth Bae was arrested and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. Now Jeff Newman says he fears the worst for his dad.
