Guide May Have Led Americans into North Korea

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - A Korean activist is giving details on
what may have led two American journalists held by North Korea to
cross the border from China.
He says they may have been led by a guide promising them
exclusive footage of human trafficking or drug deals.
The Rev. Chun Ki-won says he repeatedly warned Laura Ling and
Euna Lee not to stray into North Korean territory in the days
before their March 17 detention.
Chun says he helped arrange their trip to China to report on
North Korean refugees living in border towns.
A third American journalist, cameraman Mitch Koss, reportedly
escaped arrest.
All three work for former Vice President Al Gore's San
Francisco-based Current TV.
