I-17 is closed northbound at Loop 101, and southbound at Pioneer Road, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

He said North Korea's treatment of Mr Warmbier demonstrated "a basic disregard for human rights, for human dignity". A ban on Americans visiting North Korea would only slightly add to the North's isolation and loss of revenue.

Drivers drivers were encouraged to use alternate routes, including State Route 74, though the eastbound SR 74 was closed.

Authorities say an 11-mile stretch of Interstate 17 is closed in both directions in north Phoenix due to heavy smoke from a 50-acre brush fire in the area.
