Secy. Clinton Asks for Amnesty for Laura Ling and Euna Lee

Ling_7.11.jpgSecretary of State Hillary Clinton says the U.S. is now seeking “amnesty” for Current TV journalists Laura Ling (pictured) and Euna Lee who have been detained in North Korea since March.

The New York Times reports Ling called her sister, Lisa Ling, also a journalist, this week and said that they had broken North Korean law, but her sister did not say how.

In an interview published yesterday in a South Korean newspaper, Han Park, a political scientist at the University of Georgia and who visited Pyongyang, says Ling and Lee were not in a prison camp, but rather in a guest house in the capital city.
