On Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo brought home three American citizens who had spent the last one to three years as prisoners in North Korea. All three men are Christians and ethnically Korean. Two were falsely accused of “hostile acts” and arrested in the spring of 2017. The third, according to USA Today, was imprisoned for supposedly spying on North Korea and “trying to steal military secrets for South Koreans.”

Unlike some prisoners released from North Korea in recent years, these three men appear to be in good health. Last year, one American student released from North Korea was in a coma at the time of his release and died soon after his return to the United States. Another man released last year, a pastor from Canada, was also unwell upon his release.
