Our panel looks at Friday's opening of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Two Koreans, one from the North and one from the South, ran hand in hand up the stairs to light the Olympic flame. Earlier that day, South Korean President Moon Jae-In welcomed the younger sister of Pyongyang's leader Kim Jong-un. She is the first member of the North's ruling dynasty to venture to South Korea since the Korean War and part of the highest-level delegation ever to cross the border.
