Norovirus hits Olympic security team

White House officials said Pence was expected to continue to bring attention to North Korea's human rights abuses on the trip, and offer of reminder of grim conditions in North Korea.

The United States believes North Korea, which has sent a team to the Games, is using the event for crude propaganda, and USA officials say Pence is going there to try to counter that.

On Friday, when the Games will be officially launched at the opening ceremony, spectators fortunate enough to have got a ticket will have to wrap up at the outdoor stadium at the Olympic Plaza where temperatures will be hard to sustain.

"We'll see what happens", Tillerson said Monday while traveling in Peru when asked if the administration would accept an invitation from North Korean officials to meet in South Korea.

Late a year ago, at the height of recent tensions between the USA and Kim Jong Un regime, Tillerson publicly confirmed that the administration had maintained direct communication with North Korea through secret, low-level channels.

"Some have canceled their ticket for the opening ceremony", Lee said.

Trump and other senior officials have repeatedly said that time is running out before North Korea gains the capability to strike the USA mainland with a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile.

Pence said his message, if he met any officials from the North, would be the same as it has been in public.

Games organisers have picked up on Moon's theme of peace and reconciliation.

In Japan, which has the biggest concentration of U.S. Marines outside the United States and is home to the powerful U.S. Seventh Fleet, Pence will visit a Japanese Self Defence Force Patriot PAC-3 missile battery, which would be Japan's last line of defence against incoming North Korean warheads.

Pence arrived Tuesday in Japan, where he will meet with Prime Minster Shinzo Abe and USA service members. One student from Seoul, on holiday with his parents, said even South Koreans weren't used to such low temperatures.

North Korea's Rodong Sinmun carried an article with a photo on Tuesday saying the delegation left Pyongyang the previous day. It was greeted by throngs of protesters, some of whom held large photos of Kim Jong Un with black crosses drawn through them.
