Winter Olympics 2018 IOC discussing measures to contain norovirus outbreak

Officials with the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics have now confirmed that local intranets at the games were hacked as the opening ceremonies commenced.

"Kim Yong Nam, Kim Yo Jong and President Moon Jae In and his wife all stood up to wave to the players of the north and the south", it said.

President Moon Jae-in declared the Games open and watched as South Korea's 2010 Olympic gold medallist, Kim Yuna, lit the Olympic cauldron which will burn throughout the Games.

The official media of North Korea has praised the importance of the historic trip to the South of a delegation that included the sister of the regime's supreme leader, and says the visit paves the way for peace.

Among those who participated in such meetings were the late leader and father of Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-il, and the late former presidents of the South, Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, respectively. That said, the PyeongChang ceremony did manage to beat out the 2008 ceremony in Torino (22.2 million) by 27 percent.

The first true night of Olympic competition in PyeongChang seems to have held up pretty well for NBC.

He made it to the stage right after North and South Korea marched together behind the blue-and-white unification flag.

"There is no daylight between the United States, the Republic of Korea, and Japan on the need to continue to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically until they abandon their nuclear ballistic missile program", Pence said, adding that he was "encouraged" by his talks with the South Korean President.

Pence, who was in South Korea for the Olympics, has said the United States and South Korea were closely aligned in their approach to dealing with North Korea. "We are making sure our systems are secure and they are secure".

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Sunday it was too early to tell whether a diplomatic detente between the two Koreas at the Winter Olympics would lead to results, but the move had not driven a wedge between Washington and Seoul.
