Olympics hit by cyberattack, source not revealed

Mike Pence says the US is open to a discussion with North Korea

People privy to the operations of the official opening ceremony, which was broadcasted Friday night in America, reportedly anxious that a failure to launch drones could have been part of the for now-ambiguous system difficulties.

The organizers refused to reveal the source, but are dealing with the issue. "We decided with the [International Olympics Committee] we are not going to reveal the source", Pyeongchang organising committee spokesman Sung Baik-you told reporters, according to Reuters. The organizers say that while television and internet access was affected, it "it had not compromised any critical part of their operations".

"I certainly don't know who it is, and best industry practice is that you don't talk about an attack at this stage", Adams added.

The Winter Games are being staged only 50 miles from the border with North Korea, which is technically still at war with the South since their 1950-1953 war ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty.

South Korea's unification ministry said Sunday that the government will make efforts to help continue inter-Korean dialogue sparked by the North's high-level delegation visit, expecting relations to take a drastic turn if certain conditions are created. We are now investigating the cause of the issue.

The two neighboring rival countries displayed an act of solidarity by having some participants from each country honored together during the opening ceremony, and combining the respective women's hockey teams into a singular, unified one.

"We have decided with the International Olympic Committee that we are not going to reveal the source", added Sung Baik-you during the press conference.

Kim Yo-jong, the younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and the delegation, led by ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam, wrapped up a three-day trip to South Korea and headed back home.

"Of course, no evidence will be presented to the world".
