US student freed from N. Korea dies

Otto Warmbier, former North Korean detainee, has died on Monday, his parents said in statement released by the hospital in Ohio. The US student who had been held in North Korea for 17 months returned last week in a coma.

"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 statement said.
