A South Korean activist was arrested on Thursday after he returned from an unauthorized visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK), where he called for the reunification of the two Koreas and bitterly criticized President Lee Myung-bak of South Korea for his hard-line North Korea policy.

The activist, Ro Su-hui, 68, entered North Korea on March 24 to observe the 100-day mark after the death of Kim Jong-il, the North Korean leader, which he called “the greatest sorrow of the Korean nation,” according to the North’s state-run media.

But he chose to return home by walking across the heavily guarded demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas.
