American Journalists Released from North Korea

American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee have been pardoned from all charges by North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.

Former president Bill Clinton returned to high-profile diplomacy and made a special trip to North Korea on Tuesday (August 4) in hopes of having Laura and Euna released.

Clinton offered “words of sincere apology” to Kim Jong Il, who issued a special pardon under North Korea’s “humanitarian and peace-loving policy.”

In June, Laura and Euna were sentenced to 12 years in labor prison by North Korea’s Central Court for “committing hostilities against the Korean nation and illegal entry.”

Laura (pictured right inset) is the sister of Lisa Ling, former co-host of The View. Thanks, Bill!!!
