Pyeongchang Games: IOC meeting to discuss North Korea threat

Posted: Updated:
LONDON (AP) -

The security challenges posed by North Korea to the Pyeongchang Olympics will be discussed at an IOC meeting next month. The International Olympic Committee session comes five months before the Winter Games are staged 50 miles across the border from North Korea.
    
Although tensions have been building for months amid new missile tests by the North, the pace has intensified since new sanctions were passed against Kim Jong Un's regime by the U.N. Security Council last week. It led to heated rhetoric between the United States and North Korea.
    
The IOC says, "We are monitoring the situation on the Korean peninsula and the region very closely."
