Euna LeeThe repressive regime of North Korea never seizes to amaze in their quest to be the most evil country in the world.   On March 19 it was reported that North Korea detained two U.S. reporters.

Two American journalists on a reporting trip to the border between China and North Korea have been detained by the North Korean military, a human rights activist and another source said Thursday.

Laura Ling, a Chinese-American, and Euna Lee, a Korean-American, were believed to have been detained by North Korean border guards on Tuesday morning …

The journalists went to China last week to report on North Korean refugees in northeastern China …

Laura LingOn April 23 it was reported that North Korea had decided to indict the two reporters.

North Korea said Friday that it had decided to indict two American journalists who have been detained for more than five weeks on charges of illegally entering the country and committing “hostile acts.”

It is sad how these journalists are going to be used by the North Korean government as leverage in negotiations with the U.S. government.

North Korean prisons are some of the cruelest in the world.  Pray for protection for these two journalists and their quick release.
