U.S. college student released by North Korea home, but in coma

The announcement comes as former National Basketball Association player Dennis Rodman is paying a return visit to North Korea.
Rodman said the issue of several Americans detained by North Korea is "not my objective right now", in remarks made in Beijing before the release of Warmbier was publicly disclosed.
In Tokyo, a visiting senior USA official said Rodman is making the trip as a private citizen.
Warmbier, 22, a University of Virginia student from suburban Cincinnati, arrived in the USA on Tuesday evening, witnesses said. The State Department says this was the first time the United States was able to confirm the status of the student since he was sentenced to hard labor as a result of what North Korea deemed "anti-state acts". Warmbier's parents said they learned of their son's condition "only one week ago".
The 56-year-old NBA Hall of Famer, who was heavily criticized for failing to raise the plight of a jailed United States missionary on a previous trip, said discussing detained U.S. citizens was "not my goal right now".
America appeared to be on a collision course with China today after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that the USA was considering imposing sanctions on countries that do business with North Korea.
Three Korean-Americans are now believed to be held in North Korea, and Tillerson said Tuesday the State Department was continuing discussions with the North Koreans about them.
Kenneth Bae, an American who was detained for two years in the North from 2012, told the Korea JoongAng Daily last month he was forced to confess his crime and also to fabricate some parts of his story. He said Warmbier, of Wyoming, in suburban Cincinnati, was en route to the U.S.
That moment to use this chip might have arrived, in Pyongyang's estimation, with the escalation of tensions between the US and North Korea over the latter's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Rodman talked to a women's basketball team at a gym Wednesday and visited the birthplace of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert has declined to provide details on the circumstance of Warmbier's release or comment on his health condition.
Republican Sen. Rob Portman says North Korea should be "universally condemned for its abhorrent behavior". Thousands of US troops are based in South Korea, and the Demilitarized Zone between the North and South is one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world.
The university said in a statement that Kim, also known by the Chinese version of his name Jin Xue Song, was apprehended after concluding a trip to carry out "agricultural development work" at the school's "experimental farm".
That sense of relief is shared throughout this nation, which also wonders how long North Korea will be permitted to continue its nuclear designs and to foment unsafe global threats. He identified the church as Friendship United Methodist Church. Warmbier had been staying at the Yanggakdo International Hotel.
Trump was immediately informed and ordered Otto's medical evacuation, with the agreement of the North Koreans, according to people with knowledge of the process.
During a government-arranged news conference in Pyongyang, which was held a month before the ruling was handed down, a tearful Warmbier pleaded for his release, saying he stole the banner because a member of his church offered to buy him a used vehicle in exchange.
Less is known about these three prisoners than Warmbier, whose friends and family have helped shed some light on his odd and unfortunate case. The magazine of the university's alumni association describes the Z Society as a "semi-secret ring society" founded in 1892 that conducts philanthropy, puts on honorary dinners and grants academic awards. He said that over the past 18 months, Warmbier's family has "had to endure more than any family should have to bear".
Worldwide organizations condemned Warmbier's sentence, which they saw as unnecessary and lengthy.
