US student detained by North Korea Released.

Otto Warmbier, an American college student detained by  North Korea in January 2016 at the Pyongyang airport, returned to US.  Though he is back, he looks in a bad shape and is said to have been in Coma from past a year. He was rushed to Cincinnati Medical college center right after he landed.


The questions that spring up now is what happened in this 17 months he was detained there ? He was detained by the North Korean officials for taking a poster which contained the government slogan from his hotel room while he was on a tour of the reclusive company. He was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor and his session was the last time anybody saw him.

His parents who were quite all this while, reciprocated with their eagerness to see their son. They voiced out their concern and proceedings had taken place at the governmental level so that Warmbier could come back to his home land. According to North Koreans report, Warmbier had contracted boutilism over a year ago and since then he has been in the perpetual state of coma over sleeping pills that he took. They are 3 other Americans to detained in North Korea and sources said that talks over their release is also going on.
