SEOUL, South Korea – Two American journalists seized by North Korean border guards are facing “intense interrogation” in Pyongyang for alleged espionage after illegally crossing into the country from China, a report said Tuesday.

Laura Ling and Euna Lee, journalists working for former Vice President Al Gore’s San Francisco-based Current TV, were at a guesthouse in Pyongyang’s outskirts run by North Korean military intelligence, the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper said, citing an unidentified South Korean intelligence official.
