Lee Hee-beom, chairman of the Pyeongchang Olympics organizing committee, says they'll be sequestered until they're declared well.

With the risk of war rising, some US officials are eager to play down talk of a "bloody nose" strike designed to warn the Kim regime against groundbreaking nuclear or ballistic missile tests.

Officials are examining food and water sources at a mountainside facility in Pyeongchang where the guards had been staying and also inspecting 18 other facilities that rely on groundwater.

Norovirus is a contagious virus that causes stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea. The most effective way to stop the spread is to practice good hand-washing and personal hygiene.

Accusing Abe of attempting to "chill the warming climate of inter-Korean dialogue and turn the theater of Olympics into a ground of confrontation between compatriots", the daily said his participation is "pursuant to the scenario of the U.S.to bind South Korean authorities to the chains for tightening sanctions against the north".

The arrival of the Mangyongbong 92 cruise ship was met by hordes of reporters and cameramen - and a small but boisterous protest by a group of South Koreans who oppose the last-minute agreement allowing North Korea to join in the games, which open on Friday.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says six-time Olympic gold medalist Viktor Ahn is among 32 Russian athletes who have filed appeals seeking spots at the Pyeongchang Olympics. Both countries' athletes will march under a unified flag during the opening ceremony on Friday, athletes from the two countries will train together before the Olympics begin, and a joint North and South Korean women's ice hockey team will compete during the games.

South Korea's Unification Ministry said North Korea informed it that Kim Yo Jong, first vice director of the Central Committee of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party, would be part of the delegation led by the country's nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam.

John Coates, who oversees the Court of Arbitration for Sport, says 32 Russian athletes have appealed the International Olympic Committee's refusal to invite them to the Pyeongchang Games. Dozens of Russians weren't invited by the IOC, including some top bobsledders, but Sergeeva said athletes from the United States and Canada have warmed to her because she was approved. Seoul exempted the ferry from sanctions to allow it in South Korean waters. They were all banned last year for doping at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, but those verdicts were overturned last week by CAS, sports' highest court. Analysts say her inclusion in the Olympic delegation shows North Korea's ambition to use the Olympics to break out from diplomatic isolation by improving relations with the South, which it could use as a bridge for approaching the United States.

International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound has attacked the committee's leadership as soft over its handling of Russian doping.

Protesters believe North Korea has been allowed to hijack the Pyeongchang Games, and refer to them instead as the Pyongyang Olympics after the North Korean capital.
