The North Korean regime released American Otto Warmbier after a year in captivity.
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman went to North Korea again yesterday.
Rodman was wearing a T-shirt promoting a pot exchange when he entered the regime.
North Korea has released jailed U.S. university student Otto Warmbier, Secretary of State Tillerson said.
The 22-year-old Warmbier has served just over a year of his 15-year sentence — allegedly for taking down a sign of the dead dictator Kim Jong Il while Warmbier was in the country with a tour group.
The U.S. has no diplomatic relations in North Korea. Foreigners who have been detained or imprisoned in the Hermit Kingdom often have a shared experience: confusion, coached confessions, communication blackouts and isolation.
Warmbier’s release leaves three U.S. citizens currently known to be held in North Korea: accounting professor Kim Sang Duk, businessman Kim Dong Chul and Kim Hak-Song, who worked at Pyongyang University.
