CINCINNATI (AP) - An American man just freed from North Korea has arrived in his home state of Ohio this morning.

Jeffrey Fowle (FOWL) was detained for nearly six months after leaving a Bible at a nightclub.

The 56-year-old had been awaiting trial. Fowle was flown out of North Korea yesterday on a U.S. military jet.

Two other Americans who have been convicted of crimes in the North are still being held.
