Bush condemes North Korea after student death

US President Donald Trump has condemned what he called “the brutality of the North Korean regime”, after the death of an American student who was imprisoned there for 17 months.

Otto Warmbier was released from detention in North Korea in a coma last week.

His parents say the “awful torturous mistreatment” of their son ensured that “no other outcome was possible”.

The 22-year-old was sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labour in North Korea after he confessed he’d tried to steal a propaganda banner.
