Detained U.S. citizens urge Washington to swiftly win release from North Korea Updated: 2014-09-02 04:14:39 KST

Three American citizens detained in North Korea have appealed to the U.S. government to do more to secure their release.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, arranged by Pyongyang, the three men said they were being treated humanely, but that they hoped Washington would soon send an envoy to bring them home.
Kenneth Bae, serving a 15-year sentence for alleged hostile acts to overthrow the North Korean government, said he was doing hard labor eight hours a day, six days a week.
Matthew Todd Miller and Jeffrey Edward Fowle are awaiting trial for their alleged crimes.
Following the broadcast, the U.S. National Security Council said winning the detainees' release was Washington's top priority, and the State Department urged Pyongyang to grant Kenneth Bae amnesty in light of his poor health.
