North Korea holds two American journalists for trial


The Associated Press reports that two American journalists are being held in North Korea for “hostile acts” which seem to be unspecified. The story is by Jean H. Lee and appears here. They face “trial” and twenty years in prison. The detention apparently occurred near the border with China, and the journalists were apparently trying to interview dissidents.

North Korea is reportedly on the verge of a controversial missiles test.

CNN has produced a documentary called “Undercover in the Secret State” in 2005; and ABC produced “North Korea: Inside the Shadows”

Christiane Amanpour of CNN was allowed to make her “Notes from North Korea” in May 2008.
