Laura Ling, Euna Lee Return Home To U.S.

Laura Ling, Euna Lee Return Home To U.S.

American journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling arrive back to their families after being released by North Korean authorities yesterday.

“Thirty hours ago,” Laura said at a California airplane hangar. “Euna Lee and I were prisoners in North Korea. We feared that at any moment we would end up in a hard-labor camp. Then we were told that we were going to a meeting. We were taken to a location, and when we walked thought the doors, we saw standing before us President Bill Clinton. We were shocked, but we knew that the nightmare of our lives would soon be over.”

Laura and Euna, of San Francisco based Current TV, were both arrested by North Korea in March for illegally entering the country on the Chinese border and in June, were sentenced to 12 years in prison. Yesterday, they were pardoned by President Kim Jong-Il after a meeting with former President Bill Clinton.
