PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games: Opening Ceremony Welcomes Slightly Warmer Weather But Winds Could

The Times reported that the stadium's wireless service stopped working at the beginning of the ceremony, inhibiting reporters and attendees from posting on social media.

And for her part, Kim Yo Jong, the North Korean leader's younger sister, seemed to be saying: See, we're not that scary. When her brother speaks in public, she hides behind a pillar, occasionally peeking out as if to make sure that all is going well.

I certainly don't know. Nevermind that you could find far more talented (and better nourished) women at any Texas high school football game.

The Winter Games are being staged only 80km (50 miles) from the border with North Korea, which is technically still at war with the South since their 1950-1953 war ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty.

South and North Korea last marched together at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin.

North Korea's reclusive leader, Kim Jong-un, extended an extremely rare invitation to a foreign head of state Saturday, using the diplomatic opening created by the Olympics in South Korea to ask its leader, President Moon Jae-in, to visit the North for a summit meeting.

Over 2200 Filipinos in Kuwait want to leave: minister
Photo Filipino workers just back from Kuwait filled out paperwork on Monday at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport. It is the flag carrier's privilege to be of service to those in need.

Pyeongchang organizing committee spokesman Sung Baik-you confirmed to reporters that all issues with the systems were resolved and recovered yesterday morning.

"We know the cause of the problem but that kind of issues occurs frequently during the Games".

Internet difficulties during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea have prompted officials to investigate the possibility of a cyberattack.

"Of course, no evidence will be presented to the world".

There are growing concerns the cyber-attack was Russian in origin, and was a response to the fact the Russian Olympic committee was banned from the games in December - along with almost 200 Russian athletes - because of state-sponsored doping at the games in Sochi in 2014. Reports have suggested that sponsors were prepared for such an attack, with some having insured themselves against hacking.
