This is so very tragic I can not imagine what the families must be feeling. Former View
co-host, Lisa Ling
's sister Laura and her friend Euna Lee
have been sentenced in North Korea's highest court for 12 years of hard labour (prison camp) for "for the grave crime they committed against the Korean nation and their illegal border crossing."
They were in China for former Vice President Al Gore
's Current TV, where they were covering international trafficking of women and it is believed they were abducted and taken over the border.
The trial has been shrouded in secrecy and it is unknown (other than crossing the border) why these women were arrested March 17.
