(01-09 14:23)

American Dennis Rodman has apologized for comments about captive American missionary Kenneth Bae in an interview with US network CNN.
A day after the former basketball star sang “Happy Birthday'' to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and led a squad of former NBA players in a friendly game, Rodman issued the apology Thursday through publicist Jules Feiler in an email message to The Associated Press.
In the statement, Rodman said: “I want to apologize. I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day. ... I had been drinking. ... I want to first apologize to Kenneth Bae's family. ... I embarrassed a lot of people. I'm very sorry.''
Bae, an evangelical missionary is held in Pyongyang for “anti-state'' crimes.
