North Korea's Olympics delegation leaves thorny questions behind

The delegation of 22 officials from the North arrived on Friday in order to attend the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics.

Pyeongchang Olympics organizers were looking into a disruption of non-critical systems on the day of the opening ceremony but could not yet confirm if it was a cyberattack, Games spokesman Sung Baik-you said on Saturday.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are speaking while watching Olympic speedskaters compete, hours after Moon received a historic invitation to visit North Korea. Some have speculated that it could contain a message from the North Korean dictator.
