US student confirmed detained in North Korea

Otto Warmbier, the American university student being held by North Korea, was detained before boarding his flight to China over an unspecified incident that had taken place at his hotel, his travel company says.

North Korea's official KCNA news agency said on Friday that Warmbier 'was caught committing a hostile act against the state', which it said was 'tolerated and manipulated by the US government'.
