North Korea has convicted two U.S. journalists of illegal entry and crimes against the nation, sentencing them to 12 years in a labor camp. Laura Ling and Euna Lee were detained in March along North Korea’s border with China.
Meanwhile, following North Korea’s recent nuclear testing and missile launches, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told ABC’s “This Week” that the United States could potentially reinstate North Korea on a list of state sponsors of terrorism.
Leon Sigal, a project director at the Social Science Research Council, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the Obama administration’s approach to North Korea and how the two journalists factor into the equation.
