Trial date set for Current TV reporters in North Korea

North Korea says two US journalists detained at the communist nation’s border with China will stand trial on 4 June.

Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency gave no other details in its brief dispatch. North Korean media said previously that Laura Ling and Euna Lee were accused of illegal entry and unspecified “hostile” acts.

The journalists, who work for San Francisco-based Current TV, a media venture founded by former US vice president Al Gore, were detained on 17 March near the border while reporting on refugees living in China.
