Kim Jong-Un's sister to visit SKorea this week: Seoul

N. Korean senior military official chosen to head key bureau

US officials declined to elaborate further on the expected sanctions.

Last year, many in the open-source intelligence community that track North Korea's weapons program were surprised by the sophisticated missiles on display.

The troupe are a staple of North Korean culture, but Kim's love of them may come from the secretive past of his wife Ri Sol-ju.

Security firm FireEye said hackers linked to North Korea have stolen bitcoin from at least three South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges since May 2017.

South Korea wants to use the event to re-engage with North Korea and open the way for talks to resolve one of the world's most unsafe crises, in which U.S. President Donald Trump and Pyongyang have swapped nuclear threats.

She remains blacklisted by the United States over alleged links to human rights abuses in North Korea. In particular, the NIS warned of North Korea's continued cyber attacks this year, saying, "North Korea keeps trying to steal money, including digital currencies, this year and it is expected to diversify the subject of hacking, like the Internet". As his guest at the opening ceremony, he is taking the father of Otto Warmbier, an American student who died a year ago after being imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months.

It is the first time in 13 years that the North's cheerleading squad has visited the South for a sporting event. And a dozen women added to a South Korean hockey team to form the Koreas' first-ever joint Olympic team.

Pence, who will attend the opening ceremony in South Korea, said: "We're travelling to the Olympics to make sure that North Korea doesn't use the powerful symbolism in the backdrop of the Winter Olympics to paper over the truth about their regime".

Elon launches Tesla into space
The proposal also gives Musk the option of naming another CEO so he can concentrate on design and engineering at the company. Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have essentially received only $1 a year since the company went public .

More delays likely for Tesla Model 3
A Tesla Roadster has been sensationally launched into space as part of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy's first-ever test flight. Musk also said Tesla would be able to develop the tech fast enough to pull off this demonstration by the end of 2017.

Members of a conservative civic group attend an anti-North Korea protest at a port in Donghae. Kim continued, adding that "a military option" for North Korea is being discussed by the White House as a measure of last resort.

The U.S. had no immediate comment. And North Korea has a history of doctoring images it releases to the world.

It's unclear whether any member of the North Korean government delegation will hold talks with USA officials during the Olympics.

Assuming the Coincheck hack was indeed carried out by North Korea, it would just be the latest example of the reclusive country attempting to generate revenue from cryptocurrency.

Hong, the analyst, said Kim Yo Jong's presence would give North Korea a better opportunity to win South Korean help in reaching out to the United States.

And while the president has insisted any engagement be predicated on North Korea's complete renunciation of its nuclear ambitions, Tillerson in December offered to begin direct talks "without precondition". "We're not in a dark situation, a blackout", he said at the time.

The U.S. Embassy in Seoul said Washington is aware of the North Korean decision, but it had nothing to share at this point. He also said Washington may see Kim Yo Jong as an avenue to deliver messages to Kim Jong Un.

One of the people who spoke to Reuters said that the spy agency said "it's a possibility that North Korea was behind the theft". "And we will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Japan, the people of South Korea, and our allies and partners across the region until we achieve the global objective of denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".
