BEIJING, June 13 (Reuters) - Former National Basketball Association star Dennis Rodman said on Tuesday he was about to visit North Korea as a private citizen.

Rodman met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on previous trips to Pyongyang.

He was expected to arrive in North Korea later on Tuesday for a trip that the State Department said was not an official U.S. visit, CNN reported on Monday. (Reporting by Jake Spring; Writing by Michael Martina; Editing by Bill Tarrant)
