US student Otto Warmbier, formerly held captive by North Korea who was released last week in a coma state, passed away yesterday, according to his family. Otto was 22 years old.
Since his death was announced North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un fears the US is planning an Osama bin Laden assassination operation against him.
The Daily Express reports:
The 22-year-old’s grieving family have blamed his death on “torturous” mistreatment at the hands of the dictator’s vicious regime during his 17-month detention in the hermit state.
Mr Warmbier was held in North Korea after attempting to steal a propaganda poster from a hotel and eventually returned home to Cincinnati in a coma, not able to understand language and had severe brain damage.
And now, South Korea intelligence reports suggest Kim Jong-un has gone into hiding after the announcement of Mr Warmbier’s death on Monday.
South Korean intelligence chairman Lee Cheol-woo said: “Kim is engrossed with collecting information about the decapitation operation through his intelligence agencies.”
He is said to be travelling through the north incognito over fears of an assassination attempt at the hands of the decapitation squad, formed of US Navy seals and South Korean military.
Authorities in Kim Jong-un’s North said the American student had fallen ill with food poisoning and taken a sleeping tablet – which doctors in the US found no evidence of.
His family released an emotional statement, saying: “Unfortunately, the awful tortuous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today.”
The news comes just hours after the US Government released a statement in the wake of Mr Warmbier’s death, warning Jong-un they hold North Korea responsible for the US prisoner’s death.
Donald Trump issued a statement condemning “the brutality of the North Korea regime” following the death of US student Otto Warmbier.
While, the US ambassador to the UN said Mr Warmbier’s death highlighted the “barbaric nature” of Kim’s rogue state.
