Rodman to Kim: 'Do me a solid' and free American

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is tapping his friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to call for the release of a Korean-American man detained in the North. Rodman met with Kim during a visit to Pyongyang in February, and they watched an exhibition game together.

Today, Rodman sent a tweet, calling on Kim to "do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose."

Bae is a tour operator who was arrested in North Korea in November.
