Laura Ling and Euna Lee Go on Trial in North Korea

Hosted by

Two American journalists go on trial Thursday in North Korea, where they’re charged with illegal entry and “hostile acts.” Euna Lee and Laura Ling work for Current TV, a San Francisco-based Internet outlet started by Al Gore. Since they were detained in March, the two have met with the Swedish ambassador, who handles affairs for the US, which does not have diplomatic relations with North Korea. They also have spoken by phone with relatives back home, including Lisa Ling, Laura’s sister, and herself a reporter.
