First picture of US student who ‘confessed to severe crimes’ in North Korea

The North Korean government have released the first images of a US student who has apparently confessed to severe crimes. The American student has been under arrest since January after being detained in an airport before he was about to board a plane to China. According to reports he was trying to steal a propaganda slogan from the Pyongyang hotel that he was staying at. He has been named as Otto Warmbier, a 21 year old student of the University of Virginia.

‘I committed the crime of taking out a political slogan from the staff-only area of the Yanggakdo International Hotel,’ the North’s KCNA news agency quoted Warmbier.
