"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."
