McCain: Americans 'stupid' to travel to North Korea

Warmbier returned to the US last week after being imprisoned for 17 months in North Korea, but was revealed to be in a coma shortly after news of his release emerged.

Doctors last week said Warmbier had suffered severe neurological injuries, for which tests did not conclusively reveal the cause.

The United States flew two supersonic bombers over the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday in a show of force against North Korea, South Korean officials said.

Warmbier was arrested and imprisoned in North Korea during President Barack Obama's time in office, though North Korea only informed the U.S. of Warmbier's medical condition earlier this month.

Warmbier and Gratton met in Beijing before their flight to North Korea, where they became fast friends. "And then, as a second phase, try to achieve the complete dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear program".

He said in an interview on "CBS This Morning" broadcast Tuesday that while it's not known for sure what happened, there can be speculation that North Korea made "unjust and cruel treatments" to Otto Warmbier. "If it's under the, again, under the right circumstances. We did so, without result", Fred Warmbier, Otto's father, said in a press conference earlier in June, explaining that he and his wife were initially instructed to keep silent to avoid agitating the North Koreans.

Doctors who examined Otto Warmbier after his release said there was no sign of botulism in his system.

Gordon Chang, a Daily Beast columnist and author of "Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On the World", called Warmbier's death a case of "state-sanctioned murder", and believes that President Trump will have to do more than the usual song and dance."North Koreans thought it was safe to brutalize Otto Warmbier", Chang wrote.

But he firmly rejected two statements issued last week by Tomas Ojea-Quintana, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea, about detainees and stalled family reunions between Koreans on both sides of the divided peninsula.

The U.S. side is expected to press China to cooperate on a further toughening of global sanctions on North Korea. Warmbier, an American college student who was released by North Korea in a com.

"It really is a tragedy". North Korea accuses Washington and South Korea of sending spies to overthrow its government.

When a senior U.S. official visits North Korea, it is usually taken as a sign that tensions between the adversaries are easing somewhat.

Theresa May to 'reflect' after disastrous election result
In pro-EU London , the Tories suffered a tremendous electoral reversal and weren't able to challenge Labour in marginal seats. A diminished May, who is already facing calls to resign , has less parliamentary room for maneuver within her own party.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson vowed to hold North Korea to account for Mr Warmbier's death, plus work to released three other "illegally detained" Americans. Warmbier returned home last week in a coma, and died Monday. "It saddens me that a bad regime damaged an essential part of Otto - his brain". You can tell from the outpouring of emotion from the communities that he touched - Wyoming, Ohio and the University of Virginia to name just two - that the love for Otto went well beyond his immediate family.

"I can not understand what the Warmbier family is feeling right now". The company, Young Pioneer Tours, said Tuesday that it would no longer take Americans to North Korea because the "assessment of risk" was too high.

But Moon stopped short of saying North Korea had murdered the US citizen, saying the circumstances that lead to his condition were not known. DPRK is short for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, North Korea's official title.

"No one deserves that", said Gratton.
