Asian American TV Journalists Held in North Korea

Euna Lee and Laura Ling

Euna Lee and Laura Ling

I got this from Big WOWO and had to repost a link to it on BcB because I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve heard of this. With all the talk of the Somali pirates and the American Captain that was freed, you’d think a story like this would merit some kind of attention, especially since one of the reporters is Lisa Ling’s sister (we all know celebritydom has its perks). I just hope they get out and this doesn’t end up like some Brokedown Palace type ish… 

Not sure what we can do, but if you want to at least try something, I would contact the State Department to let them know there ARE people out there that care about these two being held and that we want them back like America wanted  Captain Phillips to escape. So here’s the State Departments email and contact info. Let Hillary Clinton know that they should continue talks with Pyongyang through the Swedish Embassy to negotiate their release: 

U.S. State Dept. Public Communication Division: 

PA/PL, Rm. 2206 
U.S. Department of State 
2201 C Street NW 
Washington, D.C. 20520

  1. Thanks for posting, aznheartthrob. Hopefully we can continue to raise awareness. I don’t know what will happen, being that we have no diplomatic relations with North Korea, but hopefully they’ll let Euna and Laura come home.
