Sister of American Held in North Korea Slams Dennis Rodman

"Outraged" by the former NBA player's comments on her brother, Kenneth Bae, a missionary who is accused of "anti-state" crimes


The sister of an American citizen being held in North Korea says she is "outraged" by Dennis Rodman's visit to Pyongyang for a game on leader Kim Jung Un's birthday and his comments about the jailed missionary during a bizarre television interview.  

Rodman sang "Happy Birthday" to Kim before leading a squad of former NBA stars onto the court at a Pyongyang stadium on Wednesday for a game Rodman said is part of his "basketball diplomacy" with the North that has been heavily criticized in the United States.
