Laura Ling and Euna Lee leaving North Korea!!!
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il has issued a “special pardon” to Laura Ling and Euna Lee the two American journalists convicted of sneaking into the country illegally, and he ordered them released during a visit by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
The release of Ling and Lee was a sign of North Korea’s “humanitarian and peace loving policy,” the Korean Central News Agency reported.
Bill Clinton arrived in North Korea Tuesday on an unannounced visit and met with the reclusive and ailing Kim.
North Korea accused Ling, 32, and Lee, 36, of sneaking into the country illegally in March and engaging in “hostile acts” and the nation’s top court sentenced them in June to 12 years of hard labor.
Hooray!!! Yeah!!! And God Bless Bill Clinton!!!
