SEOUL, South Korea - A delegation spokesman says former NBA star Dennis Rodman met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, telling him, "You have a friend for life."
VICE spokesman Alex Detrick told The Associated Press late Thursday that Kim joined Rodman in watching an exhibition basketball game in the North Korean capital earlier in the evening.
Rodman, three Harlem Globetrotters and a VICE television crew are in Pyongyang to shoot a documentary about North Korea for HBO.
