    Two US reporters held in North Korea earlier this month will be tried for illegal entry and "hostile acts", the country's state-run news agency says.

    The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said preparations were under way for indictments and a trial.

    Euna Lee and Laura Ling were detained on 17 March on North Korea's border with China.

    The move comes amid growing tension in the region ahead of North Korea's controversial satellite launch.

    The North says the launch is part of its communications programme, but the US fears this is a cover for testing long-range missile technology.

    I'm afraid these two don't stand a chance. Yet here in the good ole USA, we are going to bring Guantamano Bay prisoners to the U.S. and give them the rights to the U.S. legal system versus the military tribunals. Wanna bet our legal system drags it out for so long that these prisoners will be released due to their Sixth Amendment rights to a speedy trial being violated.
