U.S. journalists to be tried in N. Korea


www.cnn.com

"A competent organ of [North Korea] concluded the investigation into the journalists of the United States," state-run news service KCNA reported. "The organ formally decided to refer them to a trial on the basis of the confirmed crimes committed by them."

The two reporters for Current TV, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, are accused of entering the country illegally and intending "hostile acts."

KCNA said the allegations "have been confirmed by evidence and their statements."

Groups representing journalists have criticized North Korea for detaining the two reporters.

Basically, two female U.S. jouranlists are going to be tried in N. Korea, for "intending to commit hostile acts".

The international Press Institute is pushing Iran and N. Korea to release ALL journalists being used for political leverage (which is, trul, a DIRECT accusation of those nations).

I'm sure ransom demands will be handed down from both countries soon enough. Deals will be made, they'll be released, and this whole thing will have been forgotten about.

On another note, maybe it's time journalists learned to stay out of third world dictatorships where they can be traded like currency.

Just sayin'...
