Two Current TV journalists, reporter Laura Ling photographer Euna Kim, were detained by soldiers while on assignment near the North Korea's border with China. The journalists were taken into custody by border guards near the Tumen River. While there's no word yet as to the exact reason for Ling and Kim's detainment, State Department spokeswoman Julie Reside tells ABC News that "We are working with the Chinese government in the area to get information on the whereabouts and welfare of the Americans in question. We have also been in touch with North Korean authorities to express our deep concern about this situation. We have also been in touch with our protecting power, the Swedish Embassy in Pyongyang." (Here's a recent report by Ling about the fate of deported gang members in Mexico.)
