Former NBA star draws rebuke for N Korea trip

American basketball player says Korean-American detainee was at fault for being held captive in Pyongyang.

    Former NBA star Dennis Rodman continues to court controversy with his actions in North Korea.

    The American basketball player and a group of former athletes are in the reclusive communist country to celebrate the birthday of its leader Kim Jong-un. 

    Rodman's visit,  however, drew sharp criticism when he suggested that Korean American Kenneth Bae, who has been confined in North Korea for over a year, was at fault for being held captive there.
