SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea says it's preparing to indict two American detainees for carrying out what it says were hostile acts against the country.

Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency said Monday that investigations into American tourists Miller Matthew Todd and Jeffrey Edward Fowle concluded that suspicions about their hostile acts have been confirmed by evidence and their testimonies.

KCNA says North Korea is making preparations to bring them before a court.

It says both Americans were arrested in April after entering the country as tourists.

The news agency did not say what crimes they were alleged to have committed.
