N. Korea Sentences American To Six Years Of Hard Labor

After being accused of working against North Korea's government, American citizen Matthew Miller was sentenced to six years of hard labor Sunday, after a trial at North Korea's Supreme Court in Pyongyang. Miller, of Bakersfield, Calif., had entered the country on a tourist visa in April.

From Seoul, Jason Strother reports for NPR:

"Reports out of North Korea say the court found Matthew Miller guilty of trying to spy on the regime. It said Miller tore up his visa and asked for asylum in order to be thrown in jail so that he could investigate the human rights situation there.
