Two female journalists have been detained while working near the border of North Korea and China.

According to the South Korean media, the women refused to stop filming when asked to. The women were identified as Euna Lee and Laura Ling, who is Lisa Ling's sister.

It is still unclear when they were detained or for whom they were working for.

We hope the situation is taken care of soon!

    The official story has the North Koreans stating that they asked them to stop filming, and they didn't. The unofficial story is that they were covering the Northern border between N. Korea and China. Maybe they were filming N. Koreans attempts to flee to China, and the N. Koreans wouldn't like that.

    Only detained? They are lucky they weren't fucking shot. What a bunch of dumbasses!

    Not sure where these gals are from but people gotta learn, you go to different countries there are different rules and laws. Hell, they probably make them up along the way as the need arises. But one thing for sure, you follow them no matter who you are and how much money you have! Crazy stuff happen to people who travel to different countries.

    By the way, Lisa Ling is the one that does the eye opening special reports on Oprah Winfrey's show, doesn't she? Like when she went into the Polygamist compound or the Disgusting Doggie Kennels.

    They are working for Current TV based out of San Francisco, it was reported on the news early this morning…

    They should have stopped filming. North Korea doesn't play around when it comes to "security issues". At best, she'll be thrown out of the country and not allowed to ever return. At worst, she'll be sent to one of North Korea's infamous concentration camps, where she will be brutally abused and worked to death.



  33. 33

    ….and lisa ling is who????



  34. 34

    These fucking people aren't famous that's for sure.

    Re: papergiraffe – Whatever whore



  36. 36

    "for whom they were working for"??? nice grammar, perez.



  37. 37

    they got what they deserve, when the military of a country asks you too stop filming u turn the camera off. they do not carer that you are an american. You are on their soil. deal with it



  38. 38

    i loved her at current tv. She's really fearless just like her sister.



  39. 39

    To bad they didn't arrest them both and Keep Them There? Ahh So?



  40. 40

    Well, it sucks enough being put in foreign jail or whatever. But if it's North Korea? You're screwed. That is one country I would NEVER screw around with. Kim Jong Il is one serious mofo.



  41. 41

    your opinion doesn't really fucking matter.. she is a journalist.. btw laura is my cousin.. shithead



  42. 42

    that reply was to sushi.. and to papergiraffe.. lisa is an asian-american born successful journalist. who the hell are you?'



  43. 43

    looks don't run in this family

    Making comments on idle gossip is harmless. Making racist inappropriate comments about women whose lives are in danger is irresponsible and unspeakable. These women have families who are worried about the safety of their loved ones. These journalists have risked their lives to research and report on stories that can have long term impacts on our world. Some of you need to grow up or shut up.



  45. 45

    This is what you all can look forward to with Nancy, Harry and Barack in charge.

    I watch a lot of cable news, and North Korea is getting more and more evil every day. Kim Jong-Il just won "re-election" by 99% of his country (100% who voted), so he's on a power trip. South Korean airlines are no longer flying over their air space. So I'm not shocked about this at all. Eveyone (who can) needs to stay away from the crazy dictator!



  47. 47

    nobody knows exactly what happened. if they were actually filming on which side of the border. I just pray for a safe return for them both. Appreciate the concerns and support. Stupid comments are just inconsiderate.



  48. 48

    They work for Current TV here in San Francisco!

    THis is very sad and concerning. Lisa Ling hosted a very scary and disturbing "National Geographic" TV special a couple of years ago where she went in secretly with a camera crew and filmed in North Korea. That country is so whacked out and out of touch with reality. They worship the president and his father "The Dear Leader" like they are gods - when Lisa Ling went to motion and touch a photo of the "Dear Leader" in these people's apartments, they freaked and told her to back away from the picture. They want to kill all Americans - North Korea is scarier than Iran or any other place in the Middle East. Freaking Iraqis have more rights and open-ness than the North Koreans do.

    Lisa Ling was on "The View," like, 10 years' ago, before Elizabitch Hasselbeck replaced her. Lisa left "The View" to report for National Geographic. She also reports for Oprah and now CNN - where her ol' Channel One (a channel that is or was on in high schools) buddy Anderson Cooper is at. TV junkie that I am, it took a no-brainer like me to figure out that Laura Ling just had to be Lisa's sister when Laura and the Current channel came on over 4-1/2 years' ago (It's the channel Al Gore helped launch. current.com is the website). They look and sound almost like twins! There's a third sister? Oy … Not sure she's like a triplet. I'd say Lisa and Laura are more like twins. Laura was also on that Channel One. Anyway, regarding North Korea, not long after Current launched, two other reporters on the channel were accepted to tour the country, guided at all times, and they had to hide their video cameras during much of their tour. North Korea really is a country more dangerous than any other - probably even more than Iran and Afghanistan put together. I hope Lisa and that other sister get out of their dentention safe.

    If the powers that be got wind of the story bent, they would detain them even if they had stopped filming, taken their cameras, watched the footage and then decide what to do with it and them.
