In 2009, Laura Ling was investigating North Korean sex trafficking with her colleague Euna Lee when they were arrested on suspicion of illegally entering North Korea along the Chinese border. The detainment of both journalists ended after five months when President Bill Clinton visited Pyongyang to speak with Kim Jong-il, who ultimately pardoned Ling and Lee. Following her release, Ling cowrote the 2010 memoir Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home with her (arguably more famous) sister, Lisa Ling. The acclaimed journalist shares her story of captivity and rescue during this Unique Lives and Experiences talk, “Life Inside a Korean Prison.”
