South Korea's President Moon Jae-in said on Tuesday North Korea should swiftly return South Koreans and Americans detained in the isolated nation.

Moon expressed condolences to Otto Warmbier, an American university student who had been held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months and who died on Monday, according to the presidential office.

The presidential Blue House cited Moon as saying "it is deplorable that North Korea does not respect human rights."
