22-year-old US student released from North Korean prison dies

A 22-year-old University of Virginia student who spent 17 months in a North Korean jail has died in a United States hospital just days after being released from captivity in a coma. Tillerson says he extends his condolences to the family of Warmbier and offers his prayers as Warmbier's parents "enter a time of grief no parent should ever know". Warmbier's doctors said he had suffered extensive tissue loss in all regions of his brain, but showed no signs of physical trauma.

22-year-old American student, Otto Warmbier has died in a coma, just six days after returning to the U.S.

He appeared emotional at a news conference a month later, in which he tearfully confessed to trying to take the sign as a "trophy" for a U.S. church, adding: "The aim of my task was to harm the motivation and work ethic of the Korean people".

His parents confirmed he died on Monday. According to North Korea, the coma was from getting botulism combined with being given unidentified sleeping medication, right after his sentencing.

He had planned to study in China in his third year of college and heard about Chinese travel companies offering trips to North Korea. #North Korea considered the crime to be an act of 'hostility against the state'.

In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer Monday evening, Whitehouse blamed Warmbier's demise on North Korea's brutal treatment and said that North Korea can not be allowed to treat Americans this way.

President Trump called North Korea a "brutal regime" following the death of Warmbier.

Earlier, doctors treating Warmbier had said he suffered "severe neurological injury" and that he was in a state of "unresponsive wakefulness".

In response to the news, U.S. President Donald Trump condemned North Korean "brutality" at the White House, after a series of meetings with the technology executives and academic leaders.

"If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honoured to do it", Trump said in the interview.

After being detained in North Korea for 17 months, Warmbier was finally flown back home on June 13.

Warmbier, who was returned to the USA last week, had reportedly been in a coma since March 2016. His family said during his release that they had not had any contact with him for months.

Warmbier's parents have told USA media that he was medically evacuated from North Korea in a coma. He returned home to the Cincinnati area last week. "Surrounded by his family this afternoon he died". USA doctors, though, have said they've found no trace of the illness.

Upon his release, North Korean officials told USA officials he had to be in a coma for more than a year after suffering from a botulism infection.
