President Donald Trump denounced North Korea as "a brutal regime" after the death of a 22- year-old US student released by the reclusive country in a coma last week.

Speaking moments after news of Otto Warmbier's death was announced publicly, Trump decried the Pyongyang regime.

"Bad things happened but at least he got home to his parents," Trump said during a White House event.
