Kenyan headed for South Korea accidentally traveled to North Korea

SEOUL, April 24 (UPI) -- An indigenous Kenyan cow herder registered to attend a U.N. biodiversity conference in Pyeongchang, South Korea, said he was detained in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, after booking a wrong flight last September.

Daniel Olomae Ole Sapit, 42, who is from Kenya's semi-nomadic Maasai tribe, said the similar sounding names had confused him and his travel agent in Kenya, who booked the flight.

"For an African, who can tell the difference?" Sapit told The Wall Street Journal.
