Hard Labor in North Korea for 2 American Women
Original post made by Sharon on Jun 8, 2009
Two American journalists, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, have been arrested by the North Korean government and sentenced to twelve years hard labor.
This is what they face, according to the State Department's human rights report on the DPRK:--Web Link
"Prolonged periods of exposure to the elements; humiliations such as public nakedness;
confinement for up to several weeks in small 'punishment cells' in which prisoners were unable to stand upright or lie down;
being forced to kneel or sit immobilized for long periods;
being hung by the wrists;
being forced to stand up and sit down to the point of collapse."
Maybe some of the outraged expressed at the treatment of a few AQ terrorists can be expressed against the treatment of the two American women by North Korea.
