There's no word yet on who is responsible for the attack.

So those guys are clearly not Kim Jong Un and Trump.

"For all that President Moon has done in outreach and discussions around the Olympics and inter-Korean talks, there is no daylight between the United States and the Republic of Korea and Japan on the need to continue to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically until they abandon their nuclear and ballistic-missile program, " Pence told reporters Saturday aboard Air Force One.

It is also a loaded message that North Korea is willing to be a part of the "comity of nations" but not at the terms dictated by the US.

The live show was meant to be a pared down version of the feat, with 300 drones flying at the end of the opening ceremony, but that too was scrapped.

North Korea has been accused of involvement in a number of cyber incidents, including WannaCry - although it has slammed that accusation as "absurd".

Trumo and Kim Jong Un impersonators make an appearance.

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.

The two teams marched together at an Olympics opening ceremony for the first time since 2006.

Russia, which has been banned from the Games for doping, said days before the opening ceremony that any allegations linking Russian hackers to attacks on the infrastructure connected to the Pyeongchang Olympic Games were unfounded.

Relations between the two Koreas have improved in recent weeks, with Pyongyang agreeing to send its highest ranking delegation ever to attend the Winter Olympic Games, being held in the South Korean resort of Pyeongchang. While South Korea hasn't suspended the joint military exercises, it has agreed to delay them this year.

Kim's presence at the Olympics has presented people in South Korea and beyond with something new to know about North Korea.
