The three American citizens who were released from North Korean custody landed at Joint Base Andrews Thursday.  

They arrived at the airport in Prince George's County at 3 a.m., according to officials. 

U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went to North Korea earlier this week and came home with the three men. Officials said the detainees were accused of "hostile acts" or espionage against the North Korean regime.

President Donald Trump spoke about their release early Thursday morning.
