    An 85-year-old U.S. veteran of the Korean War who was detained for several weeks in North Korea arrived home Saturday in California.

    Merrill Newman landed in San Francisco on a flight from Beijing.

    "I'm delighted to be home," Newman said. "I want to thank the Swedish embassy in Pyong Yang and the American embassy in Beijing for all their help. It's been a great homecoming and I'm tired, but ready to be with my family now -- and thank you all for the support we got and I very much appreciate it."
