Pyeongchang Olympics organisers 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 told Reuters on Saturday. Two athletes from the joint Koreas women's hockey team climbed stairs to the cauldron with the Olympic torch.
The events surrounding Friday night's Opening Ceremonies in PyeongChang were a stark illustration of the larger diplomatic dance going on between Washington, Seoul and Pyongyang. He said they had.
On the South Korean side of the meeting of course South Korean President Moon Jae-in chief of National Security Council Chung Eui-yong, his chief of staff, the unification minister, and chief of the South's intelligence agency.
North Korea has spent years developing its military, saying it needs to protect itself from USA aggression.
But she had no hesitation about attending the Olympics, because she looks around and sees her South Korean neighbors utterly calm.
These officials said that while Pence did not greet Kim Yong Nam, he didn't deliberately skip over him.
Moon, in a statement, said athletes from North and South will "work together for victory".
The parade featured intercontinental ballistic missiles, including what appeared to be the Hwasong-15 that's said to put the entire United States within range.
The North's Olympic "detente" is a striking shift in tactics. The pool report for the media was that Pence had "no interaction" with Kim Jong Yo.
Because of time differences, the ceremony will be televised at 5 p.m. tonight on NBC. Pence was also at the dinner and reportedly refused to shake the elderly North Korean's hand.

Moon's office says the North Korean delegates were served traditional food from the Gangwon province, a mountainous coastal area that's home to the Olympic towns of Pyeongchang and Gangneung.
"We would like to see you at an early date in Pyongyang", Kim Yo Jong told Moon during the lunch, and also delivered her brother's personal letter that expressed his "desire to improve inter-Korean relations", the Blue House said.
Moon briefly met Kim at a reception he hosted for visiting heads of state and other global leaders before the opening of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Friday.
It was an emotionally charged moment.
The two Koreas technically remain at war, as the Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty. Of course, if North Korea moves forward with new provocations - such as missile or nuclear tests - all bets are off.
The delegation's most substantive event may come outside of the Olympic ambit on Saturday. At the same time, the vice president has deliberately left the door open to a possible encounter with North Korean officials expected to be in attendance.
The North Koreans might want South Korea and the United States to make concessions if they accede to this basic framework, such as delaying the U.S.
But during her stay, Kim Yo Jong will have ample opportunity to play up the feel-good side of her country's participation in the games. Behind Pence is Kim Jong Yo of North Korea. The North Koreans, dressed in identical garb, cheered in careful coordination.
