Freed US journalists Euna Lee, left, and Laura Ling are greeted by Euna's husband Michael Saldate (2nd-R) and her daughter Hana and Ling's husband Lain Clayton as they arrive from North Korea at Burbank, California Wednesday. Following talks with former US president Bill Clinton, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il pardoned Ling, 32, and Lee, 36, who were arrested while reporting near North Korea's border with China. They were sentenced in June to 12 years of hard labor for illegal entry and "hostile acts."
