This is a sad news not only to the families and friends of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the two Current TV journalists arrested for "trespassing" in North Korea. The two were sentenced to 12 years in hard labor camp :( What's really bad is that the conviction could no longer be appealed because they were tried in North Korea's highest court.

I have read about them a few days ago and I could imagine the torment their families are feeling now. If indeed they really trespassed into North Korea, the sentence is too harsh.

i have read an article about this one earlier on Yahoo! it's even unsure if they really trespassed or the NK guards just aggressively took them. I also read that the treatment in NK's prison is so inhumane. Le's pray for them.

Yes, as ordinary people we can't really do anything to help except to pray for them. Let's hope there will be negotiations and the women will be released soon. Let's pray for both North Korea and the United States.

it is pathetic that these women are being used as pawns for political negotiations between the USA and NK
The world should take a collective stance and boycott all NK exports.
It is highly unlikely these women crossed any border. They know their parameters and would not knowingly place themselves in such a vulnerability. My hearts goes out to them and their loved ones.
