WATCH: American Imprisoned in North Korea Describes Prison Life

Matthew Miller, 24, of California has just begun serving his six-year prison sentence of hard labor in North Korea. The government permitted him to speak to the Associated Press about his first days at the prison camp.

Miller was convicted by the North Korean government of “acts hostile” in September of this year. He allegedly ripped his visa up when he arrived in the controversial country. They believe that he did this so he could be sentenced to prison and expose human rights violations.

The above video was released by the AP. It is quite obvious that Miller is being watched over closely by North Korean officials as he shares his experiences.
