Former NBA player Dennis Rodman arrives in North KoreaMore

He was placed into an ambulance bound for the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where a hospital spokeswoman said he would receive treatment.
North Korea has released Cincinnati native Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old college student who had been detained and imprisoned in that reclusive dictatorship for more than a year.
A military aircraft landed in Cincinnati late Tuesday night, bringing American student Otto Warmbier home from captivity in North Korea.
Otto Warmbier, an American university student held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months and said by his family to be in a coma, was medically evacuated to the United States on Tuesday as his local church continues to pray for him. After two doctors visited Warmbier, a USA official demanded his release on humanitarian grounds, the State Department said, and he was evacuated Tuesday.
Yun's visit came amid heightened tensions over North Korea's defiant pursuit of advanced military technologies, but USA media reports said, his mission, directly ordered by Trump, was centered on the 22-year-old student's immediate release on humanitarian grounds.
His parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, said: "We want the world to know how we and our son have been brutalized and terrorized by the pariah regime".
As Warmbier heads to receive care in his home state of OH, the full story of his experience, the cause of his illness, and his long-term odds of recovery are still unknown.
The announcement comes as former National Basketball Association player Dennis Rodman is paying a return visit to North Korea.
Warmbier was arrested last January for attempting to steal a political banner from his Pyongyang hotel.

State television footage showed the missiles on truck missile launchers in the daylight before being launched at night. The IRGC launched the missiles from western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan, home to Sunni Kurdish populations.
"The UVA family will continue to keep the Warmbiers in our thoughts and prayers as Otto returns to the United States and his home where he will receive the care and support of those who love him", university President Teresa Sullivan said in a statement Tuesday.
Mr Warmbier's release comes hours after USA basketball star Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea. Obviously it's weird that he would contract it just after he was sentenced to fifteen years hard labour by the North Korean state, but there's not a whole lot else to go off right now. In 2014, Rodman arranged a basketball game with other former NBA players and North Koreans and regaled leader Kim with a rendition of "Happy Birthday". He visited Warmbier with two doctors on Monday, and demanded his release on humanitarian grounds.
Warmbier's parents told The Washington Post their son had been medically evacuated after being in a coma for more than a year. "Over the last 18 months, they have had to endure more than any family should have to bear", Portman said in a statement. Richardson has played a role in past negotiations with North Korea. In March last year, he was sentenced to 15 years hard labor.
Warmbier also said he had been encouraged by the university's "Z Society", which he said he was trying to join.
Prince Marketing Group, which represents Rodman, did not comment on any PotCoin sponsorship in a statement regarding Rodman's trip to North Korea.
North Korea has released 22-year-old U.S. student Otto Warmbier from a 15 year sentence of hard labor, officials said June 13, 2017, as former USA basketball star Dennis Rodman arrived in Pyongyang.
It does not appear than any senior officials from the Trump administration have made a trip to North Korea.
If it were, there might be pressure on President Trump to take action against Kim Jong-un's regime, he says.
