North Korea Pardons Journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee

North Korea has pardoned American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who might return to the US with former president Bill Clinton tonight. Clinton arrived in North Korea earlier today to negotiate the release of the American journalists. He met with the country's communist leader Kim Jong Il.

The journalists, who were reporting along the Chinese-North Korean border, had been convicted of crimes against the nation and sentenced to 12 years hard labor. North Korea had made two demands if they were to be released — First, an apology, which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered a few weeks ago. And second, a visit from a high-profile emissary, which Mr. Clinton fulfilled today. So, if you ever get stuck in a North Korean jail, you can hope that the Clintons will bail you out. I'm sure the families of Ling and Lee are very happy to hear this news.
