Euna Lee and Laura Ling, who were captured in March on the Chinese border of North Korea while shooting news footage for Current TV and have been held in North Korean detention since, will stand trial in Pyongyang on June 4 for “illegal entry” and “hostile acts.”
Lee’s husband, Michael Saldate, told reporters this week that their 4-year-old daughter “still thinks mommy is at work.” And Laura’s sister, Lisa, explained that she and her family are “terrified.”
From NY Daily News:
“We don’t really know what to expect with this trial,” Lisa Ling, also a television journalist, said on the “Today” show during an interview with the families. “The situation is so sensitive.”
Lisa Ling and friend Kelly Hu will co-host a candlelight vigil tomorrow in LA’s Santa Monica at Wokcano, 1413 5th Street, 6:30pm. If you are in the area, please come and show your support.
There are additional vigils being staged in New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Portland, Chicago, Orlando, and Birmingham. Find out more here.
Thanks and good luck, Lisa and Cate. x.
