Family: Freed student who died has 'completed his journey'

President Donald Trump called North Korea a "brutal regime" after the death was announced.

Trump says North Korea is "a brutal regime" but the US will "be able to handle it".

"There is nothing more tragic for a parent than to lose a child in the prime of life", the president said in a statement issued shortly after Warmbier's death.

"The very bad torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible", the family said in a statement announcing Warmbier's death. Otto's doctors at University of Cincinnati Medical Center described his condition as a state of "unresponsive wakefulness" and stated he suffered a "severe neurological injury" of unknown cause while in North Korean custody, a report published Monday by the New York Times said.

Fred Warmbier, father of Otto Warmbier, speaks during a news conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, US, June 15, 2017. "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", Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in a statement.

The 22-year-old student from the University of Virginia has been in a state of coma for more than a year after contracting botulism soon after he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in a trial by the DPRK supreme court on March 16, 2016, according to USA local media.

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have been heightened by dozens of North Korean missile launches and two nuclear bomb tests since the beginning of previous year.

Otto Warmbier, a USA citizen who was freed last week after more than a year in North Korean detention, has died. He says Warbier's treatment by North Korea "could be a crime against humanity".

"He was peace. He was home, and we believe he could sense that", they said. His family said it was told he had been a coma since soon after his March 2016 sentencing. Otto Warmbier was 22. He was put before North Korean officials and journalists for a televised "confession".

The U.S. has condemned North Korea for its hand in the death of an American college student in a series of strong denunciations by U.S. officials.

The University of Virginia student was held for more than 17 months.

The three Americans now in captivity in North Korea are Kim Dong Chul, Tony Kim, and Kim Hak Song.

Many other USA officials have also expressed strong criticisms towards the hermit kingdom for its mistreatment of Warmbier.

Young Pioneer Tours, the group with which Warmbier travelled to North Korea, will no longer be organising tours for United States citizens to the isolated country, Troy Collings, a company director, said in a statement. The Trump administration is also working with South Korea, its ally, to counter the North Korean threat.

Warmbier's hometown rallied around his family, wrapping school-color ribbons around trees and utility poles lining Wyoming's main road. US officials have not confirmed if they have accepted North Korea's version of events.

Warmbier was "generous, outgoing, sweet, smart as a whip, just an overall good guy", Danica White, his sophomore English teacher, recalled last week.
