Rodman sorry for not being able to help detained American

“It’s not my fault. I just want to do some good stuff, that’s all I want to do"

Former-NBA star Dennis Rodman on Monday appeared to show remorse for not being able to raise the issue of detained American citizen Kenneth Bae during his latest trip to North Korea.

Following expectation in some quarters that he might use his meetings with Kim Jong Un to raise the issue, Rodman told reporters at Beijing airport that it was wrong to expect him to help Bae, who has been imprisoned in North Korea since November 2011.
