- College student has not spoken since returning from North Korea in coma

An American college student who was imprisoned in North Korea and returned to his home state of Ohio in a coma has a severe brain injury and is in a state of “unresponsive wakefulness”, according to doctors who are treating him.
Otto Warmbier, 22, who arrived in the United States on Tuesday, is stable but “shows no sign of understanding language, responding to verbal commands or awareness of his surrounding”, said Dr Daniel Kanter, medical director of the neuroscience intensive care unit at the University of Cincinnati.
