An American student arrested in North Korea asks for mercy
Otto Warmbier was held at Pyongyang International Airport and accused of stealing a governmental banner of the hotel he stayed in as a tourist. A 21-year old student admitted committing the crime and later explained that it wasn’t a hostile act against people and government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Warmbier stated that he wanted to have a souvenir to bring back home to Wyoming, Ohio.

He also said that he is faithful Christian and wanted to put this banner in one of the walls of Friendship United Methodist Church as a souvenir from North Korea. According to USA Today, Pyongyang officials believe that a young man was controlled by US government and had “an aim of destroying the unity of North Korea.”

Arrived on December 29, Warmbier stole a banner with a political slogan from one of the corners of Yanggakdo International Hotel in a staff-only area on January 1. He appeared on North Korean TV this Monday begging for forgiveness and asking to mitigate the sentence. US officials call on President Obama to take steps for bringing University of Virginia student back home.скачать dle 10.6фильмы бесплатно
