Americans Detained In North Korea Speak With U.S. Media

(Pyongyang) -- Three Americans being detained in North Korea are speaking about the conditions of their captivity. Kenneth Bae, Matthew Miller and Jeffery Fowle were each given five minutes to speak with CNN on Monday. Bae, who was convicted of "hostile acts to bring down the government" says he is regularly forced into hard labor, but treated humanely. Miller said his situation is very urgent. He's headed to trial and won't learn about the charges against him until he's in court. After that, he'll likely go straight to prison.
Fowle, on the other hand, said he's being treated well and has "no complaints" about the conditions of his captivity. He is a tourist being held in North Korea for unspecified reasons.
