U.S. journalists will be tried

March 31, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Two American journalists detained at North Korea's border with China this month will be indicted and tried for illegal entry and hostile acts, Pyongyang's state-run news agency said.

The Korean Central News Agency report did not say when a trial might take place, but it said moves to indict the Americans were underway as the investigation continues.

Euna Lee and Laura Ling, reporters for former Vice President Al Gore's San Francisco-based Current TV media venture, were detained March 17 by North Korean border guards.

The KCNA report said consular officials would be allowed contact with the reporters during the investigation.
