North Korea says it has arrested a US student accused of committing a "hostile act" against the state.
State news agency KCNA identified him as University of Virginia student Otto Frederick Warmbier.
He had entered North Korea as a tourist with the intention "to destroy the country's unity", said KCNA, which added that the US government had "tolerated and manipulated" him.
It did not give further details, but said he was now under investigation.
The US State Department is "aware of media reports that a US citizen was detained in North Korea" and is working with its protecting power, the Swedish Embassy in Pyongyang, Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner said.
He said that no further information would be shared at this time due to privacy concerns.
North Korea sometimes uses the detention of foreigners as a means of exerting pressure on its adversaries.

Do you need the U.S to provide you with travel advice regarding North Korea, or can people work it out for themselves?

Yup. Agreed.

Come see lovely Iraq! Or Afghanistan. Or Syria, or Somalia, or one of the other countries one should have a pretty good damn idea about not visiting unless you want to be at risk for arrest or worse...

First thing I thought when I heard it! A college student went to North Korea for WHAT????

I am tired of hearing of people too stupid for their own good putting themselves in ridiculous situations. Sorry, no compassion from me for this idiot!

motherfornicator

I don't know why but that just struck my funny bone just right. I'll remember that one.

As for the topic at hand, I have no idea why anyone would go there, what with the saber rattling that's been going on. Maybe the guy is a special kind of nuts, or stupid, or both.

Motherfornicator.
*Chuckles* I love that.

No but at-least they can't claimed they haven't been officially warned and sue the government for their own negligence, now the U.S is put in a situation where they have to have a conversation with those assholes, or even potentially risk the lives of special forces to get him out.

Some douche probably going to spread anti DPRK propaganda in the ironically named DPRK.


Let him rot.

And anyone else who tries to "spread democracy"...

This is the fruits of trickle down bushanomics.
The unwashed masses start thinking they're Bruce Wayne.


I meant John Wayne but I'm watching Batman and it seemed apt to leave it as such.

The U.S Government do not negotiate with terrorists.

I think they do.

But I think even US citizens can now take a tour from China, though I could be wrong. It's a very strict tour. There is no alone time except in the hotel room.

I grabbed a tour to North Korea from Beijing, myself.

Well the U.S. *IS* successfully negotiating with terrorists.

I wonder what the "demands" will be this time?

The cat is out of the bag.

Never let a crisis go to waste.

Sounds like natural selection to me. I don't see why the U.S. should save anybody that just goes there. But in the back of my mind I'm thinking "Why wasn't this Dennis Rodman?"
