BBC correspondent detained in North Korea for 'non-objective reporting'

London: BBC correspondent Rupert Wingfield-Hayes has been detained in North Korea and is to be expelled from the country over reporting.

The country's National Peace Committee told a press conference on Monday in Pyongyang that the step was taken against the correspondent for attacking the North Korean system and non-objective reporting during the filming crew's stay.

The correspondent will be banned from entering North Korea again, the committee added.
