Laura Ling: I went into a self imposed isolation

Over the weekend two Americans were freed by North Korea and reunited with their families. Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller were the last Americans known to be held there. Laura Ling and her producer Euna Lee were arrested while reporting along the border of North Korea and China in 2009. They were held by North Korea for more than four months. Laura Ling tells Anderson how she returned and had to readjust to seemingly little things like being surrounded by people who spoke English.

Where is Kim Jong Un?

Kim Jong Un has not been seen in public for more than a month. The world was watching as he skipped a major event yesterday honoring his father and grandfather. Anderson looks at just how deep this mystery goes.

GQ Magazine's Mitch Moxley was just in North Korea as the only western journalist credentialed to cover the country's film festival. Anderson asked him whether the North Korean public realizes something is amiss.

Mystery surrounds the 24-year-old American being held in North Korea

24-year-old Matthew Miller is the youngest of the three Americans being held in North Korea and allowed to speak to CNN yesterday. He was arrested last April for what North Korean authorities describe as "rash behavior." The circumstances surrounding Miller's arrest remain murky, but he is accused of tearing up his tourist visa and seeking asylum. Kyung Lah is in Miller's hometown of Bakersfield, California and found few people are willing to talk about the situation.

Former Ambassador Bill Richardson has negotiated with the North Koreans several times. He tells Anderson that this interview with the three Americans is likely a sign that Kim Jong Un's regime is ready to deal.

Inside CNN's interview with three Americans held prisoner in North Korea

In the last 24 hours, CNN was given access to three Americans being detained in North Korea. CNN's Will Ripley and his team were not told who they were going to interview when they were suddenly driven into Pyongyang. When they arrived, Will was given the opportunity to sit down with detained Americans Kenneth Bae, Matthew Miller and Jeffrey Fowle.

Terri Chung is Kenneth Bae's sister. He has been held by the North Koreans for nearly two years. She told Anderson that he doesn't look like himself, he has lost a ton of weight and he's clearly under a lot of strain.
