  1. North Korea To Try Two Americans

    Kim Jong-Un’s regime will try two U.S. tourists for unspecified “hostile acts.” Matthew Miller, 24, and Jeffrey Fowle, 56, were on separate private tours in the Hermit Kingdom in April. Miller was arrested after reportedly ripping up his visa and requesting asylum, and Fowle was detained because he left a Bible in his hotel. If the North Korean prosecution follows other recent cases, then the regime will likely coerce confessions from the two men and secure a guilty verdict before releasing them.
