American student Otto Warmbier that 17 months was in prison in North Korea and was returned home in a coma about a week ago, died in a hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The University of Virginia student had gone to North Korea as a tourist, and was sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labour after tearfully confessing he had tried to steal a propaganda banner.
