American jailed in N. Korea moved to hospital

Kenneth Bae, the American citizen sentenced to 15 years in a North Korean labor camp, has been moved to a hospital after a serious deterioration in his health, his sister said.

Detained in North Korea in November and sentenced in April for "hostile acts to bring down its government," Bae is now suffering from severe back and leg pain and has lost more than 50 pounds, his sister Terri Chung told CNN late Sunday.

    Why hasn't Dennis Rodman gone over there on a humanitarian mission to try and get him released?

      Him being such good friends with Kim Jong Un, he absolutely should. Perhaps another signed basketball will do the trick.
