Rodman bonds with North Korea's Kim

BASKETBALL star Dennis Rodman hung out with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on the third day of his improbable journey to Pyongyang, watching the Harlem Globetrotters with the leader and later dining and drinking with him at his palace.

"You have a friend for life," Rodman told Kim before a crowd of thousands at a gymnasium where they sat side by side, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the US play.

Rodman arrived in Pyongyang on Monday with three members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team, to shoot an episode on North Korea for a new HBO series.
