US Journalists Face Trial in N. Korea

North Korea is set to indict the two American journalists who were busted on the wrong side of the China-North Korea border, and it looks as if the outcome may be a foregone conclusion: North Korea’s state-run press agency reports that “suspected hostile activities have been confirmed by evidence and [the journalists’] statements.” Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who were working for Al Gore’s TV network, Current TV, are being interrogated in Pyongyang after their March 17 arrest. Diplomatic efforts are under way to aid the pair, with the US using the Swedish Embassy as an intermediary. North Korea says it is treating the two prisoners in accordance with international law.
