SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korea says two U.S. journalists detained at the communist nation's border with China will stand trial on June 4.

Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency gave no other details in its brief dispatch, including what charges they face. North Korean media previously have said that the two journalists, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, are accused of illegal entry and unspecified "hostile" acts.

The journalists, who work for San Francisco-based Current TV, a media venture founded by former Vice President Al Gore, were detained on March 17 near the border while reporting on refugees living in China.
