DPRK to try detained US journalists on June 4

THE central court of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will try two detained female US journalists on June 4, the official news agency KCNA reported today.

Euna Lee, a Korean-American, and Laura Ling, a Chinese-American, were detained before dawn on March 17 along the row Tumen River, which marks the border with China.

The DPRK accused the pair, who work for Current TV in California, of "illegally intruding into the territory of the DPRK by crossing the DPRK-China border."

The United States, which has no diplomatic relations with the DPRK, has called for the release of the two journalists.
