US Student Otto Warmbier, Freed From North Korea After 17 Months, Dies

US student Otto Warmbier was imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months.

WASHINGTON:  US student Otto Warmbier, who was imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months before being returned home in a coma less than a week ago, has died in a Cincinnati hospital, his family said in a statement on Monday.

"Unfortunately, the awful 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," the family said in a statement following Warmbier's death at 2:20 p.m. ET at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
