Otto Warmbier's death 'is a mystery to us,' North Korea says

Otto Warmbier's death 'is a mystery to us,' North Korea says

Kenneth Bae, an American who was jailed for almost two years in North Korea, told CNN he believed Warmbier could have been tortured, and cautioned other Americans against going to North Korea.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman made an appearance on Friday's "Good Morning America" and essentially took credit for North Korea's release of Otto Warmbier, an American college student imprisoned in the country for 18 months.

The article published by the official Korean Central News Agency was Pyongyang's first reaction to Otto Warmbier's death in a United States hospital on Monday after North Korea released him for what it said was humanitarian reasons. Instead, they said it appeared he had suffered severe neurological damage, possibly as a result of cardiopulmonary arrest.

He was serving a sentence of hard labor after being accused of stealing a propaganda poster. Through statements on KCNA, North Korea said it dealt with him according to its domestic laws and worldwide standards.

Warmbier died Monday in Cincinnati, Ohio, just days after arriving from North Korea in what US doctors described as a state of unresponsive wakefulness. We jumped up and down ...

How low can the North Korean regime go? However, North Korea is now saying that they are the real victim in all this.

"To see a young man go over there healthy and, (after) a minor act of mischief, come home dead basically this goes beyond any kind of understanding of law and order, of humanity, of responsibility toward any human being", he said.

Rodman said he didn't meet with North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-Un, during his most recent visit, but considered him a friend and has spent time with him in the past.

The greater the majority, the easier it is to push through legislation. But the following day, the government backtracked on the statement .

North Korea is now holding three other USA citizens.

USA doctors who had traveled to the North last week to evacuate Warmbier had recognized that the North had "provided him with medical treatment and brought him back alive whose heart was almost stopped", the unnamed ministry spokesman said.

But Chris Volo, Rodman's agent, told Strahan, "I know being there had something to do with it..."

Otto Warmbier, 22, a University of Virginia junior, essentially was sent home by that communist country to die in the United States.

"He said, 'There's just one thing I, I, would love for".

"This college kid never should have been detained in the first place", said Portman, who met secretly with North Korean officials in NY last December to press for Warmbier's release. "If we could get more trips going over there, I think anything is possible", Volo said.

Rodman, who identifies as a Trump supporter, also called on the president to join him in creating peace with North Korea.
