Anderson Cooper 360

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.
