Kenneth Bae, the Korean American detained in North Korea, has been released by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Bae’s family had just commemorated the second anniversary of Bae’s arrest and imprisonment.

Bae was released along with Matthew Todd Miller, an American also detained in North Korea for the last seven months.

No details are yet available for why the DPRK released Bae and Miller, but this is exceptionally good news and I’m excited to help welcome Bae home to America.
