US student freed by North Korea dies in hospital aged 22

He says the USA holds North Korea accountable for Warmbier's "unjust imprisonment" and demands the release of three other "illegally detained" Americans. It criticized the treatment when he was held in North Korea and thanked the USA doctors who treated him, and mentioned how he was at peace when he died.

American doctors who were treating Warmbier, a student at the University of Virginia, last week said he had suffered "severe neurological injury". His parents say he died Monday afternoon. North Korea claimed the now 22-year-old had contracted botulism and was in a coma after taking a sleeping pill, Mic reported.

Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student held captive in North Korea for over a year before his release last week, has died, according to his family.

Earlier this year, US diplomats negotiated Warmbier's evacuation, but his return to America was met with a mix of emotions after it was reported that the college student was in a coma, and had been in one for more than a year. His family said during his release that they had not had any contact with him for months.

Otto Warmbier, an American student who was held in North Korea for over 17 months and returned home comatose to OH last week, has died.

"The United States condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim", President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump said in a statement, adding that their thoughts and prayers are with the Warmbiers.

He says Warmbier's fate deepens his determination to prevent other "such tragedies".

Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American missionary, served two years of detention in the North before being released in November 2014 when then-U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper made a secret trip to Pyongyang to win his release and that of another U.S. detainee.

Warmbier was the 2013 salutatorian at Wyoming High School in his hometown of Wyoming, Ohio. He returned home to the Cincinnati area last week.

News of Warmbier's death comes days before top US and Chinese officials are slated to meet for the first-ever Diplomatic and Security Dialogue in Washington, D.C., where cooperation on North Korea will sit at the top of the agenda.

North Korea said it had released Mr Warmbier "on humanitarian grounds".

Kasich calls Warmbier a young man of exceptional spirit. While officials have reacted to past provocations with alarm and warn that the USA will consider "all options" in response to the North's defiance, they've focused on nonmilitary actions so far, such as enlisting China's help to tighten the screws on the country. He died Monday at 2:20 p.m. (1820 GMT), surrounded by relatives in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Three Americans remain held in North Korea.

The family blames North Korea for Otto's death, saying Monday, "The very bad, torturious mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible".
