BEIJING (AP) âÄî A cameraman who was traveling with two American journalists reportedly detained in North Korea has left China. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Tuesday that Mitch Koss, a San Francisco-based media outlet Current TV, was no longer in the country but did not give any other details. Koss had been traveling with journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who also work for Current TV. State-run North Korean media have said border guards arrested the two on March 17 for “illegally intruding” from China. The whereabouts of Koss were previously unknown. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing refused to comment on Koss’s departure but said officials were “working to resolve the issue diplomatically.”
