In June 2014, North Korea announced that it had detained Jeffrey Edward Fowle, a U.S. citizen it says entered the country as a tourist on April 29 and broke the law. Fowle was part of a tour group and was detained in mid-May after allegedly leaving a Bible in a hotel where he had been staying. In October, Jeffrey Fowle was released and is now back in Ohio with his family. Here's a look at other Americans who have been detained abroad. Some are alive. Some are not.
