S.Korea's Moon asks north to free captives

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Warmbier's death after his lengthy detention in North Korea was a "total disgrace" and that if the college student had been returned home to the USA earlier, "I think the result would have been a lot different".

"The result would have been a lot different, but what happened to Otto is a disgrace, and I spoke with his family".

Tuesday's flights by B-1Bs came shortly after the death of a U.S. college student who was recently released by North Korea in a coma following more than 17 months of captivity.

American doctors who examined Otto found evidence of severe brain damage that may have been caused by a traumatic injury, according to Town Hall. Warmbier had been released by Pyongyang days earlier after 17 months in state prison. In response to the tragedy, US officials have reportedly been considering a travel ban that would prohibit American citizens from visiting the country until further notice.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out".

Young Pioneer Tours, the China-based travel agency that took Mr Warmbier to North Korea, said in a Facebook post that it would no longer allow USA citizens on its trips. That consideration has since become more "urgent" since Warmbier's death at his home in OH on Monday after being in a coma for over a year.

He added that Obama managed during his tenure to free 10 Americans held in North Korea.

That said, Trump did acknowledge that China at least tried.

Trump said he would be willing to meet Kim under the right conditions, White House spokesman Sean Spicer told a regular news briefing.

For months, Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and top aides have staked any progress dealing with North Korea's burgeoning nuclear programme on China's involvement.

Senator McCain also slammed North Korea saying, "Let us state the facts plainly: Otto Warmbier, an American citizen, was murdered by the Kim Jong-un regime".

Warmbier's parents - Fred and Cindy - said that they had not been informed about their son's state and they had learned of this only one week ago before his release.

Mr Trump's administration has appeared confrontational towards North Korea, and has declared an end to a period of "strategic patience" from Washington.

China, North Korea's main ally, expressed sorrow over the death of the USA student and called on Washington and Pyongyang to resolve tensions through dialogue.
