American Student Comes Home From North Korean Prison

Jun 14, 2017

Otto Warmbier, a 22 year old American college student has come home from a North Korean prison, but not in the way his family had wanted. The young man was sentenced over a year ago to 15 years in prison for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from the hotel where he was staying. The North Koreans claimed he was committing espionage on orders from the CIA.

Now he has been released in a coma that he has been in for a year. The North Koreans claim it was a result of contracting botulism, but American doctors who flew into North Korea to get him cannot confirm that. Instead, it is believed that the young man was repeatedly beaten by his captors. At least three other Americans are being held by the Kim Jong Un regime.
