Mourners gather for funeral of student detained in North Korea

Hundreds of mourners gather to celebrate the life of an American Jewish college student who was detained in North Korea for over a year and died shortly after being returned home to Ohio in a coma.

Otto Warmbier’s brother, sister and friends were among the scheduled speakers for the funeral Thursday at a high school in his hometown of Wyoming, near Cincinnati.

A rabbi was officiating at the public service, which was closed to the news media.
