Laura Ling and Euna Lee's Trial to Start in About an Hour, AP Reports

The Associated Press reported that the North Korea's official news agency says the trial of two American journalists facing criminal charges will begin soon.

The Korean Central News Agency said Thursday that the trial will begin at 3 p.m. North Korean time (which is 7 a.m. GMT or 2 a.m. Eastern).

Laura Ling and Euna Lee were arrested in March near the North Korean border while on a reporting for former Vice President Al Gore's Current TV media venture. They are accused of illegal entry and "hostile acts."
