Inside CNN's interviews with detained Americans in North Korea

CNN correspondent Will Ripley (@willripleycnn) tells Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) what happened behind the scenes of his impromptu interviews with three detained Americans in North Korea.

"Government minders pulled me aside – they were shaking – and said we needed to go right now back to Pyongyang. I was nervous – I didn't know what was happening," Ripley said.

We got in this van and drove to an area of the capital that we've never seen before off the regular route up to this nondescript building. And it was only when we were standing at the front door that they told us...we would be talking with the three Americans who were being held in North Korea."

Here's Ripley's report on his interviews with Kenneth Bae, Jeffrey Fowle and Matthew Miller:
