it is quite disturbing that two u.s. female journalists were convicted in north korea for 12 years of ‘hard labor’ in prison. laura lee and euna ling were arrested by north korean guards for allegedly crossing the border and espionage while filming a story about trafficking of women.
i have read of north korean prison camps – they say it is the modern day holocaust. gruesome stories about slavery, torture, and starvation have been told, but nothing can be done to stop inhumanity in a communist country.
i feel sorry for these journalists, they were in fact doing their jobs but they have put themselves into risk, i hope clemency is granted for them.
