Ling and Lee convicted and sentenced to 12 years in labor camp
Few will be surprised by the conviction (I certainly wasn't), but the twelve years of labor is a harsher sentence than many North Korea watchers had anticipated, including me.
One wonders when/if they'll begin the labor at the labor camp.

Is anybody besides me a bit bewildered by there being no photos of these two women out except these, especially since Euna Lee's looks like its original purpose was for something unprofessional? Not that I'm trying to make light of their plight or anything.]
