Two South Korean citizens detained in North Korea on charges of spying have been sentenced to hard labor for life, the South Korean Ministry of Unification said Tuesday.

North Korea first announced the arrests of Kim Kuk-gi and Choe Chun-gil in March. The two are among four South Koreans known to be detained by the communist country.
