Cha's warning on North divides experts

One of the protest organizers said that "the Pyeongchang Olympics turns into Pyongyang, bearing recognition to the North Korean regime and its nuclear program".

This follows the arrival last week of the 12 players and 1 official who will participate in the Olympic ice hockey tournament as part of a first ever unified Korean women's ice hockey team.

A total of 22 North Korean athletes have won special permission from the International Olympic Committee to compete in the winter games.

The flags' hoisting came hours before 10 North Korean skiers and skaters arrive on a rare flight between the war-separated rivals.

The rise of dating apps like Tinder could be to thank for an anticipated increase of sexual activity in the athletes village.

Lee said that with the opening of the villages and competition venues, he thinks the PyeongChang Olympics have already begun.

The South Korean government will deploy a fleet of drones that are capable of recognising faces and dropping nets on to suspicious unmanned aerial vehicles that flout the no-fly zones over the stadiums.

He went on to say: "The Olympic Games show us what the world could look like, if we were all guided by the Olympic spirit of respect and understanding".

However, Trump has exchanged insults and threats with Kim and US officials have said he and his advisers have discussed a preventative "bloody nose" strike on North Korea, alarming experts who warn that this could trigger catastrophic retaliation, especially on South Korea.

That's a record for the Winter Games.

Ri added the USA can not shirk responsibility for shattering the atmosphere of improving inter-Korean relations and easing tension.

The ceremonies at the Villages saw the Olympic flag raised by Reserve Officers' Training Corps, before the respective Mayors declared them open.

The condoms will be distributed in the houses at the Olympic Village - which was opened Thursday - where the athletes would be staying.

Are direct talks between the U.S. and North Korea inevitable?

"I was a man with a disability in the North, but I defected the nation in search of freedom and I stood in the arena of the global community, and particularly at the invitation of the USA president", Ji said.

According to the North Korean diplomatic mission, the USA make claims that it will carry out large-scale military exercises after the forthcoming Olympics.
