Drones Grounded At Opening Ceremony - Not On Tape Delay

African athletes at the Pyeong Chang 2018 Winter Olympic

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's influential sister attended today's opening ceremony and shook hands with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in; the pair are scheduled to have lunch together.

Regardless, both Pence and the North Korean officials can return home and claim they did what they came to Pyeongchang to do.

Moon did not immediately accept the invitation.

Yet, by South Korean media accounts, it appears like it was Mr Abe who emerged the loser from the trip - though he had also the chance to raise Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions and its abduction programme in a brief chat with the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam.

Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and US Vice-President Mike Pence were among the VIPs at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium late on Friday.

The Korean Central News Agency reported that Kim Yo Jong delivered a letter and message from her brother during the meeting Saturday in Seoul, but did not mention that Kim Jong Un invited Moon to visit Pyongyang for a summit.

In recent weeks, USA security researchers at the security firms McAfee and FireEye warned about an escalating nation-state attack on Olympic organizations. She earlier declined to speculate on the cause and said she did not want to call it a cyberattack.

The other North Korean athletes participating in the games are three cross-country skiers, two short-track speed skaters, a pair of figure skaters and 12 female hockey players who helped form the Koreas' first-ever joint Olympic team with South Korean players.

The unscheduled meeting, the sources said, underscored the need for the two sides "to work closely to continue to remind South Korea that it should not move any closer towards North Korea".

Moon urged Pyongyang to actively seek an "absolutely necessary" dialogue with Washington, he said. In it, Kim Jong Un highlighted several huge intercontinental ballistic missiles, which were successfully flight tested three times a year ago and could reach deep into the US mainland when perfected.

Analysts believe the diplomatic drive by the North - which put its ICBMs on show at a military parade in Pyongyang on Thursday - is seeking to weaken the measures against it, and could be trying to loosen the alliance between Seoul and Washington.

The Korean chances were few, and they managed just eight shots on goal. The North Koreans, dressed in identical garb, cheered in careful coordination.

The North Korean delegation then took the bullet train to Gangneung, the venue of all ice competitions, and attended a banquet hosted by the South's unification minister Cho Myong-gyon.

Fans roared every time a Korean got the puck on her stick and Han Soojin almost put the team on the board with a shot from the left circle that hit the crossbar early in the first period.

'We are against the ugly political Olympics!' one banner, held up at a protest, said.

The unified hockey team representing North Korea and South Korea didn't fare so well in their first outing, losing 8-0 to Switzerland.

A senior USA official said Pence and Moon, while watching speed skating together on Saturday night, discussed intensifying sanctions.

At the opening ceremony for the Games, Mr Pence, Kim Yo-jong and Kim Yong-nam were seated in close proximity to each other.
