About 500 North Koreans - including athletes, officials, performers, reporters and cheerleaders - are part of the Winter Olympics 2018 delegation, visiting Pyeongchang, South Korea. Some worry, though, that the two Koreas have all their work still ahead of them when it comes to peace.

Hours before the ceremony, hundreds of anti-North Korea protesters clashed with riot police outside the stadium, burning North Korean flags and pictures of Kim Jong Un.
