Current TV journalist sentenced for 12 years in N. Korea
Current TV journalist, Laura Ling, is being sentenced to 12 years in North Korea for a "grave crime" against the nation and illegally crossing into N. Korea. She was doing a story on the trafficking of women and its unclear whether they strayed into N. Korea or were grabbed by border gaurds.
*i think she was kidnapped, and now she might be doing 12 years because their government thinks they were spying? this came as a real shocker for me because im a fan of Laura and Lisa Ling as journalists. i hope she's safe and i pray she gets out of there soon.
