North Korea FINALLY reacts to claim it tortured United States prisoner

Galeno Paniagua | 23 Junio, 2017, 20:25

More than 2500 family, friends and well-wishers gathered for the funeral of Otto Warmbier, the U.S. student who died after falling into a coma while in prison in North Korea.

Attendees included Ambassador Joseph Yun, the US special envoy who traveled to Pyongyang to bring the 22-year-old Warmbier back. President Donald Trump slammed Warmbier's detention and eventual death as "a total disgrace".

Among the expected speakers are Warmbier's brother, Austin, his sister, Greta, and some of his friends, according to the funeral program. He will be buried at a nonsectarian cemetery.

Some 2,500 mourners attended a Thursday morning memorial at Wyoming High School.

Death of Botswana ex-president who helped steady democracy
Since his retirement in 1998, Masire was reportedly involved in numerous diplomatic initiatives in a number of African countries. The Nelson Mandela Foundation was saddened by Masire's death , and said the world had lost "another great leader".

While Pyongyang accepted US demands for Warmbier's return on humanitarian grounds, Washington "totally distorted this truth and dared to clamor about "retaliation" and "pressure" on "dignified" North Korea, the spokesman told KCNA.

"They lure Americans, and then they take them hostage and then they do things to them, and that's what happened to my son", he added.

Warmbier, 22, died Monday, days after returning home in a coma following 17 months of captivity in the North for stealing a political propaganda poster from a hotel in Pyongyang. But they found no evidence that he had contracted botulism, casting doubt on North Korea's claim that he fell into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill. Before his death, the doctors said he had suffered an extensive loss of brain tissue from a "severe neurological injury" and "profound weakness and contraction" of his muscles, arms and legs.

It's also essential to get North Korea to open communication channels, he said.

The Hamilton County Coroner's office did not perform an autopsy at the request of the Warmbier family.

Also Wednesday, Russia cancelled scheduled talks with a top United States diplomat aimed at improving relations. Elections are also subject to rigorous and elaborate rules that govern how and what equipment is used.

"I still know him - I'm just going to miss him so much", the 22-year-old said.

Warmbier's friends and family are laying him to rest in Cincinnati on Thursday.

"You can tell from the outpouring of emotion from the communities that he touched -- Wyoming, Ohio and the University of Virginia to name just two -- that the love for Otto went well beyond his immediate family", the statement said.

U.S. Defense James Mattis said after the talks that the death this week of a U.S. student who was imprisoned by North Korea was evidence of a "regime that provokes and provokes and provokes".
