U.S. Army Private Travis King landed at a U.S. military base in Texas early today after being expelled from North Korea following his surprise dash across the heavily militarized border two months ago.


U.S. defence department officials confirmed King arrived on a U.S. military flight, landing at Kelly Field at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, and is expected to undergo a medical review at Brooke Army Medical Center, a hospital at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.

The U.S. government has said that upon his return King will first undergo evaluation then a reintegration process so he can be reunited with his family.

King, ran into North Korea from the South on July 18 while on a civilian tour of the heavily fortified border and was immediately taken into North Korean custody.
