The American Student Otto Warmbier, who was detained in North Korea in 2016, dies after 5 days he got back home. Otto Warmbier, who spent 17 months in North Korea in jail, was not in a good shape when he came back. The North Korean officials told that he had fell into coma after contracting botulism and taking sleeping pills back in 2016. But the US doctors claimed to have not found any evidence of the illness.

Otto Warmbier was detained in North Korea because he was accused of stealing a political poster from his hotel. He was seen breaking down in front of the press in February 2016 where he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour in North Korea after he admitted the crime and asked for forgiveness. Later nobody herd from him, until his parents pleaded the US government for his release. He was successfully brought back home on last Wednesday, but his state shook everybody. He was neither talking nor responding and said to be in a delusional state of mind.

The tour company that offered the North Korea tour packages have suspended their service to American tourist. There is a high risk for Americans visiting North Korea because of the high temper political scenario. American government has accused North Korea of killing the student and would be taking necessary steps to justify it
