Otto Warmbier 'was brutalised by pariah N Korea', parents say

BBC News 

The parents of Otto Warmbier, the US student who is in a coma after being freed this week by North Korea, say he was "brutalised" by a "pariah regime". The 22-year-old is now being treated in hospital after the flight carrying him landed in Ohio on Tuesday. Mr Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour for attempting to steal a propaganda sign from a hotel. He was given a sleeping pill after becoming ill after his trial last year and did not wake up, North Korea said. He is now being treated at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
