U.S. student released from detention in N. Korea confirmed by Tillerson

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed the release of U.S. student Otto Warmbier from detention in North Korea. The Washington Post cited Warmbier’s parents saying he was in a coma and medically evacuated, and Tillerson declined to comment on Warmbier’s condition. It comes as former NBA star Dennis Rodman visits North Korea, but the Trump administration said it did not authorize his trip.
