Paddy Power gifts to Kim Jong Un may have breached UN sanctions

Irish bookmaker may have unwittingly broken UN sanctions through gifts to North Korean leader

Paddy Power, the betting shop giant that sponsored U.S. basketball star Dennis Rodman's controversial trip to North Korea, provided a selection of gifts to Kim Jong Un which may have contravened UN sanctions, it has emerged.

The betting company confirmed that it sent the gifts after accusations surfaced that Rodman gave thousands of dollars in presents to Kim Jong Un during a trip to North Korea in December.
