Otto Warmbier's death investigated

Otto Warmbier's death investigated”

Every life is important - Otto's life, lives of the American detainees, and the lives of each person in North Korea.

In a statement issued shortly after his public remarks, Trump said that he extended his "deepest condolences" to the Warmbier family.

Young Pioneer Tours, the travel company that took Otto Warmbier on a fateful trip to North Korea, will no longer take USA citizens into North Korea.

Otto Warmbier, an American college student who was released by North Korea in a coma last week after more than a year in captivity, died on Monday, his family said. The University of Virginia student was detained at the airport as he was leaving Pyongyang in January 2016.

He said in an interview on "CBS This Morning" broadcast Tuesday that while it's not known for sure what happened, there can be speculation that North Korea made "unjust and cruel treatments" to Warmbier.

North Korean authorities blamed his condition on botulism and said they had freed him on "humanitarian grounds".

"Now, the assessment of risk for Americans visiting North Korea has become too high", it said, adding, "we will no longer be organising tours for United States citizens to North Korea".

Otto Warmbier grew up in the northern Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming. "It's worth a forceful response". A month earlier, North Korea released another USA citizen, Jeffrey Fowle, after detaining him for six months for leaving a Bible in a nightclub in the city of Chongjin.

Moon, who was elected on a plan to engage in talks with North Korea, said he agreed with Trump on being willing to participate in a dialogue with North Korea under certain conditions, given that sanctions and worldwide pressure have not resolved the situation.

On Tuesday, U.S. Sen.

North Korea said Warmbier went into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill.

But after he was returned the USA, doctors cast doubt on this, finding no signs of botulism.

They said Warmbier's severe brain injury was most likely - given his young age - to have been caused by cardiopulmonary arrest cutting the blood supply to the brain.

Some observers believe that North Korea became anxious because Warmbier's condition suddenly worsened. North Korea accuses Washington and South Korea of sending spies to overthrow its government.

Or maybe North Korea concealed his medical condition for so long in the hopes that he'd recover.

Warmbier had planned to study in China in his third year of college and heard about Chinese travel companies offering trips to North Korea.

USA rights group Human Rights Watch said Warmbier's death highlights the North's position as "one of the worst rights abusing governments in the world". "You've got to capitalize on this, and influence their internal debates to get them to recognize and acknowledge what happened". The cause of death has not yet been confirmed. Outside groups say North Korea tortures thousands of its own citizens at prison camps.

Three other USA nationals are still being held by the Kim Jong-un administration.

Outrage in the USA means that more pressure, not dialogue, will be the next course of action with Pyongyang.

Kenneth Bae, who was held in North Korea from 2012-2014, also called on the secretive dictatorship to release the three Americans still detained there.

Moon has been unable to pursue the engagement with the North he favors because of a string of North Korean missile tests.

His family said Monday that he first appeared anguished when he first arrived home, but died "at peace". He said he was kept isolated most of the time but not physically abused. And then, as a second phase, try to achieve the complete dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear program.

Associated Press writers Hyung-jin Kim and Kim Tong-hyung contributed to this report.

"That is what we expected from him".
