After an American was released from North Korean custody, the attention has now focused on two other U. S. citizens still in its jails, and at least one North Korean legal expert has some unusual advice to offer: let Washington formally apologize to Pyongyang, and the country's leader will consider pardoning them.
The suggestion on Thursday by Sok Chol Won, a professor of international law, offers a look at North Korean thinking — academics, government officials and ordinary people alike.

Harrop told the city solicitor's office this week that signs for independent candidate Buddy Cianci far exceed the size allowed by city ordinances.
Ben Donahower, a Pennsylvania-based political consultant who sells lawn signs, said he advises campaigns to place signs on private property.
Attorneys for a union representing workers at New Jersey's Trump Taj Mahal Casino are appealing a Delaware bankruptcy judge's decision allowing the termination of their collective bargaining agreement.
Picket lines were to go up outside Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort as union members planned to protest the court-ordered termination of their health insurance and pension plans.
The demonstration comes a day after billionaire Carl Icahn told The Associated Press the struggling casino "will almost certainly close" and that he wishes he had never answered the phone when Trump Entertainment Resorts approached him about taking over the Taj Mahal and investing $100 million to keep it afloat.
Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union is locked in a bitter battle over the future of the casino, which Trump Entertainment Resorts had been threatening to close on Nov.
