Below is a collection of video from today's emotional and tearful homecoming of Laura Ling and Euna Lee.  After 140 days in captivity in North Korea, the two landed in Burbank this morning. 

The first clip below captures the moments they stepped off the plane and into the arms of their waiting families.

Laura Ling spoke briefly of the ordeal, tearfully describing the moment they realized they were going home.

Al Gore, founder of Current TV (the channel where both women work) welcomed them home with his remarks.

And President Obama applauded everyone's efforts saying, "We are obviously extraordinarily relieved" and "very pleased with the outcome."
