Dear Leader and Rodman

, January 9, 2014

Hakan Sokmensuer, a tourist from Florida in the US, who travelled to North Korea's Pyongyang and watched the basketball games between former NBA players and North Korean players, shows a copy of North Korea's Rodong Sinmun newspaper featuring the picture of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un with Dennis Rodman, upon his arrival from Pyongyang, at Beijing Capital International Airport on January 9. Rodman's third trip to North Korea has drawn criticism from human rights activists and the family of imprisoned US missionary Kenneth Bae after Rodman appeared to suggest in an interview peppered with obscenities that Bae, rather than the North Korean authorities, was responsible for his incarceration. The headline on the newspaper reads as "Dear Leader Kim Jong Un watched a basketball game between our players and US players". Reuters/Kim Kyung-Hoon
