Family appalled Rodman won't help detained US man

SEATTLE (AP) -- The sister of a U.S. man imprisoned in North Korea says his family can't believe what Dennis Rodman said about him while on a basketball trip to celebrate the birthday of leader Kim Jong Un.

Terri Chung told KOMO Radio in Seattle on Wednesday the family was appalled that someone in a position to help 45-year-old Kenneth Bae refuses to do so.

Chung says it's clear Rodman "has no idea what he's talking about."

In a CNN interview Tuesday, Rodman said he refused to discuss Bae with North Korean leaders and implied Bae may deserve his punishment.

Bae was arrested in November 2012 while leading a tour group. He was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for crimes against the state.
