Korea's Moon: N.Korea bears responsibility in US student's death


He "has completed his journey home" to OH, the family said. Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20pm. He also demanded the release of the three remaining Americans illegally detained in the North. Officials from both the left and right joined in the condemnation, accusing the regime of murder on top of its threat to global security.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In said Tuesday that North Korea bears a "heavy responsibility" for the death of United States student Otto Warmbier and described its regime as irrational.

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Centre said that while Warmbier had been breathing on his own, he was severely brain damaged and showed no awareness of his surroundings and made no "purposeful movements or behaviours".

In the U.S. Warmbier's death has stoked anger towards North Korea.

Trump said he had spoken with Warmbier's parents, telling reporters in the Oval Office that it was "incredible what they've gone through". The regime claimed the young man fell into a coma after contracting botulism and being given a sleeping pill.

The university student, who had been on a tourist trip, was sentenced to 15 years hard labor, a punishment the U.S. decried as far out of proportion to his alleged crime, accusing the North of using him as a political pawn.

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. In the 17 months since Warmbier was taken, another two Americans have been detained, both in the airport under similar circumstances.

The South Korean government meanwhile pledged to make every effort for the return of three other U.S. citizens, who are ethnic Koreans, and six South Koreans, who remain in custody in North Korea.

North Korea has claimed Warmbier fell into a coma soon after he was sentenced past year, saying he had contracted botulism and been given a sleeping pill.
