U.S. journalists face criminal trial in North Korea
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea said on Friday that the two U.S. journalists arrested last month on its border with China would be put on trial to face criminal charges.
"Our related agency has decided to turn the U.S. reporters over for trial based on findings of their crimes," the North's KCNA news agency reported, without giving further details.
The planned trial comes as the reclusive state faces international censure for its launch early this month of a long-range rocket.
