Coroner examining death of US student released by North Korea

INTERVIEW-North Korea rejects UN remarks on foreign detainees

Warmbier, a 22-year-old student at the University of Virginia, returned to his home OH last week in a comatose state after over 17 months of detention in North Korea, where he had been arrested for trying to steal a political propaganda sign.

Trump adds, "he should have been brought home a long time ago".

President Donald Trump had urged the nation to pray for Otto Warmbier, describing his ordeal as a "truly awful thing".

He said the form would require Americans to affirm they're aware of what's transpired to other US citizens, such as Warmbier, whom the senator said was "murdered" by the North. "The results would have been a lot different", Trump said.

"The bad torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today", Warmbier's parents said after their son's death. They say he had severe brain damage but they don't know what caused it.

Warmbier was taken into custody in January 2016 and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in March last year, for trying to steal a banner containing a political slogan from the hotel where he had been staying. A report in The Financial Times states that two were arrested earlier this year, while the third, Kim Dong-chul was detained in October 2015 and sentenced to 10 years of hard labour on espionage charges. But that war would create thousands of North Korean Mr and Mrs Warmbiers, mourning the deaths of their innocent sons. A month earlier, North Korea released another US citizen, Jeffrey Fowle, after detaining him for six months for leaving a Bible in a nightclub in the city of Chongjin. The 22-year-old student was finally returned to the USA last week but was in a coma and died Monday as a result of severe brain trauma. "Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20 p.m.", a statement released by his family on Monday read.

In an excellent July/August 2017 cover story in The Atlantic, the journalist Mark Bowden outlines the four major options for handling North Korea.

Warmbier's sophomore English teacher said he would be "dearly missed".

The senator from Arizona says, "There should at least be a form for them to fill out that says, 'If I go to North Korea, I understand I am taking great risk, and I do not hold the American government responsible'".

Former US ambassador to the United Nations and former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, said there should be an investigation into what happened to Warmbier leading to this "tragic situation".

Trump has stopped short of completely resetting relations with Cuba again: He isn't ending diplomatic ties, or closing the U.S. Trump on Saturday flew for the first time to Camp David, the government-owned retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains.

U.S. President Donald Trump blamed the "brutality of the North Korean regime" for Warmbier's death.

The president drew criticism in May when he said he would be "honored" to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
