Despite loss in Olympic opener to Switzerland, Korean women's hockey team celebrates unity

An International Olympic Committee spokesman said drones that were scheduled to be used in the opening ceremony were not deployed.

The report also highlighted the joint entry by the two teams of the DPRK and South Korea into the stadium.

The delegation arrived on a special plane Friday from Pyongyang to Incheon, in the first high-level interactions between the two sides of the Korean Peninsula in over a decade.

"It is too early to say if. using the Olympics in a way to reduce tensions, if that is going to have any traction once the Olympics are over, we can't say right now", Mattis said.
