N. Korea delegates arrive in Seoul for pre-Olympics inspection

Seoul (AFP) – A North Korean delegation arrived in Seoul on Sunday to inspect venues and prepare cultural performances for next month’s Winter Olympics, in the first visit by Pyongyang officials for four years.

Television footage showed a group of seven officials led by Hyon Song-Wol, the leader of the North’s popular Moranbong band, crossing the heavily-fortified border on a bus before arriving at Seoul train station about an hour later.
