North Korea - UPDATE

North Korean crazies kidnap again.
This time it's Lisa Ling's sister. Ling visited North Korea in 2006.

Brainwashing at its utmost...

UPDATE: Confirmation from the official Korean Central News Agency -

The journalists and cameraman Mitch Koss were following their guide across the frozen Tumen River early Tuesday morning when North Korean soldiers armed with rifles approached them from a half-hidden guard post, the South Korean Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported Saturday. It cited activists working with North Korean refugees in China and other unidentified sources.

Koss and the guide pushed the North Korean soldiers away and ran back toward China, but Ling and Lee were caught, the newspaper said, citing an unidentified source.

Laura Ling works for Al Gore's media organization, Current TV.

Since we don't have any representation in Pyongyang, we'll probably need to work through the Swedes and the Chinese on this negotiation.
