Two Americans who illegally entered Laos in search of American prisoners of war were freed Saturday after supporters paid $1,500 and canceled a protest at the Laotian Embassy in Washington. Donna Long and James Copp, both of North Carolina, arrived in Bangkok on a flight from Vientiane, the Laotian capital. They appeared exhausted after 41 days of detention, 32 in solitary confinement. "It was a horrible 41 days, but I don't regret it," said Long.

Donna Long, 45, and James Copp, 44, said they were captured near the Mekong River when they ventured over the border from Thailand on their mission to document that POWs are being held.
