Winter Olympics was hit by cyber-attack, officials confirm

With nods to the country's landmarks and ancient culture as well as its potential to lead the world in future technological innovations, the opening ceremony at Olympic Stadium featured athletes from 91 countries, including a delegation from North Korea that marched into Olympic Stadium with athletes from South Korea.

The jitters among allies spiked recently when the administration withdrew the nomination of Victor Cha, a former staffer on the NSC under George W. Bush.

The 24-year-old staked an early claim for the most inspirational story at the Pyeongchang Winter Games in the snowboard slopestyle, sealing third behind compatriot Max Parrot, in silver, and Amercian teenage gold medallist Red Gerard.

They are scheduled to watch a concert in Seoul, performed by the visiting North Korean art troupe, together with Mr Moon. But the two leaders appear to differ on the path to get there.

Korea watchers knew of Kim Yo Jong, generally, before this, and she had been rising in the hierarchy in the years since her brother took power upon the death of their father, Kim Jong Il, in late 2011.

More than 200 of them sang and smiled all night long, carrying the show long after the game was decided.

The attack hit WiFi systems before the opening ceremonies, and shuttered a website for the games. That's when a lot of the movement is going to happen.

In South Korea and beyond, commentators are taken with Kim's surprisingly stylish and relaxed demeanor.

"All the facilities in the Games area are built so they can withstand strong earthquakes over 7.0.so I assure you there was no issue regarding these facilities", said Sung Baik-you, spokesman for the Games organisers.

Moon knows the risks.

It was supposed to be the first race of the 11-event Alpine program, and had been scheduled for Sunday.

Still, North Korea has shown no signs it's willing to discuss denuclearization. For the IOC, successful cyberattacks could have severe consequences and bring harm to attendants, participants and sponsors to the Olympics.

The high-level delegation from North Korea flew over the western sea toward rival South Korea in a private plane owned by Kim Jong Un.

His boss was Roh Moo-hyun.

Plus there's that whole thing with Russians using cyberattacks to undermine the very core of U.S. democracy. But rather than presenting herself as a stiff party operative, she has looked engaged and interested during multiple outings in Seoul, Pyeongchang and Gangneung. Kim Yo Jong, the younger sister of cruel and dangerous North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, has made a mesmerizing impression with her swagger and smile and goodwill gestures. The two did not interact - although Pence, who arrived late, greeted the other dignitaries around him - prompting criticism of the American vice president.

It was harsh to the senses, a wicked way to transition from fairy tale to reality. But for the first time, a host city is hoping to change that by opening four counseling offices - referred to as Gender Equality Support Centers - scattered across the Olympic sites. Many think he'll take a cautious approach if a summit comes off, given the nuclear threat. Kim Yo Jong watched with Moon Jae-in.

Saturday's primetime coverage from Pyeongchang, South Korea airing on NBC and the NBC Sport Network cabler brought in a 15.2 household rating/27 share in Nielsen's 56 overnight metered markets, which cover about 70% of U.S. Tv households.

But Moon, a liberal who has always wanted to engage the North, will also have to convince a good portion of his own people who are deeply wary about North Korean intentions.

"Yeah, I didn't hear any of it", she said, laughing. He previously worked at The Associate Press, where he won two Pulitzer Prizes for his photography.
