Two U.S. female journalists were detained by North Korean border guards
Two U.S. female journalists were detained by North Korean border guards at the border between China and North Korea, South Korean media said on Thursday.

"Two reporters working for a U.S.-based Internet news media outlet, including a Korean-American, were detained by North Korean authorities earlier this week, and they remain in custody there," South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted a diplomatic source as saying.

According to the agency two journalists from the Los Angeles-based Current TV, accidentally crossed the border into North Korea while making a film about the secretive Communist state some two or three days ago. The detainees were identified as Euna Lee, editor of the news service section, and Laura Ling, a reporter.

Other South Korean media reported that the group comprised three people, and a male reporter managed to escape.

Earlier reports said that North Korean border guards had detained the journalists on Chinese soil.
