Jeffrey Newman comes out of his home to make a brief comment about his father, Merrill Newman, an 85-year-old Korean War veteran being detained by North Korean authorities, in Pasadena, California November 22, 2013. North Korea last month detained Merrill Newman, a veteran of the Korean War and a retiree from the upscale Northern California city of Palo Alto, taking him off a plane as he was about to leave the country where he had been visiting on a tourist visa. Jeffrey Newman said on Friday he has had no communication with his father since the detainment. REUTERS/Jonathan Alcorn (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS TRAVEL) less
