North Korea Pardons Jailed Journalists

Hosted by

Los Angeles has seen street demonstrations demanding release of two American journalists sentenced to 12 years for stepping over the border from China to North Korea. Today, they were pardoned. The announcement came shortly after former President Bill Clinton arrived in North Korea and pictures of him with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il were published all over the world. Mike Chinoy, who's covered Asia for CNN, is with the Pacific Council on International Policy.
