22-year-old U.S. student Otto Warmbier dies after leaving North Korea

22-year-old U.S. student Otto Warmbier dies after leaving North Korea

Trump on Monday issued a statement offering condolences to the Warmbier family and denounced "the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim".

The 22-year-old died Monday afternoon at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center less than a week after he was returned, comatose, to the United States from North Korea.

"Countless innocent men and women have died at the hands of the North Korean criminals, but the singular case of Otto Warmbier touches the American heart like no other", Haley said in a statement on the death of Otto Warmbier.

He was sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years in prison with hard labor.

North Korea had said that Warmbier was suffering from botulism, and illness that causes paralysis, and as a treatment he was given a sleeping pill from which he never woke. They say he had severe brain damage but they don't know what caused it.

As NPR's Michele Kelemen reported last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said his agency is considering a travel visa restriction to North Korea - but that would stop short of a full travel ban, which would require action by Congress.

Trump said he had spoken with Warmbier's parents, telling reporters in the Oval Office that it was "incredible what they've gone through".

"We hold North Korea accountable for Otto Warmbier's unjust imprisonment, and demand the release of three other Americans who have been illegally detained".

Will sanctions against North Korea work?

His family confirmed late last night that he had died at hospital in Cincinnati, claiming he died as a result of abuse while in prison.

He was released Tuesday amid ongoing USA diplomatic efforts and just days after North Korean officials shared his medical condition.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said North Korea should swiftly return South Koreans and Americans detained in the reclusive nation and that it had "a heavy responsibility" in the death of Mr Warmbier.

Warmbier's death is set to cast a shadow over annual diplomatic and security talks between senior Chinese and USA officials in Washington this week.

The company, Young Pioneer Tours, said Tuesday that it would no longer take Americans to North Korea because the "assessment of risk" was too high.

The meeting is expected to focus on North Korea and US President Donald Trump, who condemned North Korea following news of Warmbier's death, has urged Beijing to use its diplomatic and economic influence to pressure Pyongyang about its nuclear programme.

Amid growing nuclear threats from North Korea, a South Korean defense official said over the weekend that Seoul is expected to start mass production of new mid-range hit-to-kill missile interceptor.
