Moon shakes hands with N. Korean delegate

Moon shakes hands with N. Korean delegate

A Korean intruder was tackled by Olympic security and thrown out of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics opening ceremony after attempting to accost two performers, organisers said on Friday. An outbreak at last year's World Athletics Championship in London forced competitors from several countries to miss events.

US Vice-President Mike Pence has skipped a dinner at which he was due to share a table with North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam.

Later, North and South Korean athletes both entered the Olympic Stadium together, waving flags of unity - the long-time dream, at least in theory, of many Koreans in the North and South.

That moment was certainly the abiding image of a ceremony which provided no shortage of highlights. They are also banned from the upcoming Paralympic games.

They are also fielding a joint women's ice hockey team. A primary objective of the trip was to show a united front with our allies in Japan and South Korea in support of a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.

Take a bow, Pita Taufatofua. Some details of the opening ceremony remain closely guarded secrets, but expect a celebration of Korean culture and history.

Combined and live across all USA time zones for the first time, the two outlets scored an 11.1/9 metered market rating, which is a decline of just 6% from the Sochi soft launch.




Despite temperatures below freezing, Taufatofua again arrived with his torso exposed, braving the cold with a wide smile.

I mean, we get along personally, so I believe Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, they will, if they talk, they'll probably get along, because in my opinion, they're much the same people.

Aside from the traditional proceedings, the ceremony organisers put on a spectacular visual and audio show.

"We are here to protest against President Moon-Jin government's policy on the Pyeongchang Olympics", protester Kang Min Soo said.

Since a truce stopped the Korean War in 1953, contact between North and South Koreans has been rare, but every year hundreds of North Korean defectors cross into the South.

NBCUniversal will present more than 2,400 hours of coverage of the PyeongChang Games - the most ever for a Winter Olympics. And she's only 18 years old.

The Games begin later on Friday to end February 25.
