N. Korean soldiers treated like heroes for arresting U.S. journalists

SEOUL, Dec. 24 (Yonhap) -- Two North Korean soldiers who arrested female U.S. journalists on the border with China in March have been treated like heroes, according to North Korean media reports monitored here on Thursday.

The North Korean soldiers, Son Yong-ho and Kim Chol, appeared on a special program of the Pyongyang-based Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station and reflected on the moment they detained the two American journalists -- Laura Ling and Euna Lee of the San Francisco-based Internet outlet Current TV.
