U.S. STUDENT DETAINED IN NORTH KOREA APOLOGIZES
An American student who was arrested in North Korea apologized Monday, begging the Korean people and government for forgiveness for his “crime.”
North Korea said it arrested Otto Warmbier, a 21-year-old University of Virginia undergraduate student, last month for allegedly “perpetrating a hostile act” against the regime.
Warmbier was presented to the media in Pyongyang on Monday, where he apologized for trying to steal a political banner.
