Journalists Detained in North Korea

Euna Lee, top, and Laura Ling. Photo | Yonhap/Associated PressWe at NEED are all very concerned about the two journalists who were detained in North Korea and recently sentenced to 12 years in a prison camp. For more information about this story, read this article recently published in the New York Times. The two journalists were at the border of North Korea reporting on the plight of North Korean refugees. I would encourage readers to learn more about what these journalists were risking their lives to tell the world. I would suggest watching the documentaries Seoul Train or Children of the Secret State to learn more about what the North Korean people are facing. Also, for specific questions about what you can do, contact the North Korea Freedom Coalition.
