Retired US basketball player Dennis Rodman has arrived in North Korea for his second visit this year to meet leader Kim Jong-un.

North Korea's Vice-Minister of Physical Culture and Sport, Son Kwang Ho greeted Mr Rodman on the tarmac of Pyongyang airport.

The trip comes days after the North Korean authorities revoked a visit by a US envoy, seeking the release of Korean-American Kenneth Bae.

Mr Rodman said he was not there as "a diplomat", but as a "friend of the country of North Korea".
