The Associated Press, citing anonymous sources, said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson decided to implement a “geographical travel restriction” for North Korea, which would make the use of U.S. passports to enter that country illegal. Sources told the AP that the restriction would go into effect 30 days after a notice is published in the Federal Register.

The move comes in the wake of the death of university student Otto Warmbier, who passed away after lapsing into a coma in a North Korean prison.
