The U.S. Department of State says it has "received with deep sadness" news about the death of an American college student who was released from North Korea and returned home to OH in a coma last week.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I just wanted to pass on word that Otto Warmbier has just passed away.

"Jane and I are lifting up the Warmbier family in our prayers at this hard time, and we are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of this remarkable young Ohioan".

As CNSNews.com previously reported, Warmbier's father, Fred Warmbier, thanked Trump for bringing his son home. He was returned home to the USA last Tuesday in a coma.

The economics student from the University of Virginia was travelling in North Korea as a tourist when he was arrested on 2 January 2016.

North Korea released Warmbier last week and said he was being freed "on humanitarian grounds".

They said when Otto returned to Cincinnati he was unable to speak, see or react to verbal commands.

"Now it has escalated to brutalizing Americans, including three other citizens currently imprisoned in North Korea", McCain said in a statement.

US government officials worked out Warmbier's release in March 2016 with the help of the United Nations. "The U.S. government should not just throw up its hands and say, 'This is just how North Korea is.' But how do you do that in a smart way where there is some modicum of accountability?" The tour offers biking trips along the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea as well as scuba diving, according to USA Today.

North Korea said Mr Warmbier went into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in a statement that "countless innocent men and women have died at the hands of the North Korean criminals, but the singular case of Otto Warmbier touches the American heart like no other".

But a team of doctors assessing him in Cincinnati said they had found "no sign of botulism".

Three more U.S. citizens are now being held by North Korea, including two men who taught at a Pyongyang university funded by overseas Christian groups, and a Korean-American pastor who was accused of espionage for the South. His doctors said last week that Mr. Warmbier had lost a significant amount of brain tissue, and was unresponsive to his surroundings despite being awake.

Republican Sen. Rob Portman of the Cincinnati area said North Korea should be "universally condemned for its abhorrent behavior".

USA lawmakers are trying to ban Americans from travelling to North Korea.

His family said in a statement released by a hospital that Warmbier died Monday afternoon.

Foreign detainees in North Korea have previously recanted confessions, saying they were made under pressure. At the least, Mr Trump's administration may use it to further pressure China and Russian Federation to try and rein in Pyongyang.
