Two North Koreans have been detained in Sri Lanka after carrying 150,000 dollars in cash, sources said Thursday.

According to the sources, two North Koreans, who departed from Oman to China, were arrested on Monday while transferring to another flight.

Under Sri Lankan law, any cash amounting to more than 10 thousand dollars can be confiscated if the carriers fail to make a proper report to the authorities.

The detained North Koreans said the cash were the wages earned by themselves as well as other co-workers at construction sites in Oman.

India-based North Korean embassy also requested for the release of the two as well as the confiscated cash.
