KCNA report on Aijalon Mahli Gomes's suicide attempt

Here it is, straight from the KCNA (朝鮮語):
American Prisoner Attempts Suicide

Pyongyang, July 9 (KCNA) — American Gomes serving a prison term in the DPRK recently attempted to take his own life, according to information available from a relevant organ.

Driven by his strong guilty conscience, disappointment and despair at the U.S. government that has not taken any measure for his freedom, he attempted to commit suicide. He is now given first-aid treatment at a hospital.

The Swedish embassy here representing the U.S. interests acquainted itself with the condition of the patient at the hospital.
Hmm... He feels despair that the US government hasn't taken any measure for his freedom? That sounds like Pyongyang extending an invitation to Washington if ever there was one. Read between the lines, American Clinton: Let's make a deal!

Maybe there's reason for the "glimmer of hope" after all. I leave you now to giggle to yourselves about "a relevant organ."
