North Korean athletes under 24-hour watch at Olympics

While most Olympic athletes will be mingling throughout the Games, North Korean athletes will be separate, under 24-hour watch, closely monitored wherever they go. A system of watching each other, as they do back home in the North, amid inevitable fears of defections from athletes of other members of the delegation.

    does it really shock anyone that they would do this!

  • Austin Harmon

    North Korea as a whole is just a gigantic prison. No human rights or privacy.

  • Kyota Tsushima

    Being a North Korean person sounds hard..

  • Whyinem

    Very sad that this goes on in 2018

  • Ciz

    Super glad I wasn't born in such a country, must be hell

  • Deann Lowder

    I hate the North Korea government so much. I feel bad for the people that are treated like they are worthless. People may say "they can try to escape" but it not simple. Not only are there guards at every point leaving or entering the country, their families would be imprisoned or worse. I pray that one day the people of North Korea will know there are others that do care and want them to live their own lives. For me, I do not hate the people, I hate the government and those that think there is nothing wrong with the ways they treat everyone.

  • ashgidds

    I want to rescue these people

  • Sephora Boutley

    If they leave, the N Korean government would probably murder their whole families.

  • FSXNOOB - GᗩᗰᕮS & ᗰOᖇᕮ

    If they fail at the Olympics, kim will kill them anyway..

  • G String

    This is So Sad........ Holding your family Hostage so they don't Defect.......This is a Terroristic state that needs to be Destroyed...

  • Mr. Tactical

    These people are literally hostages and we're just watching.

  • ashgidds

    I hope Kim Jon unn chokes to death on a hand grenade

  • Sergiu H

    So sad. They should try to save them and not let them return to north korea

  • M

    Do Americans even realize that North Korea's standard practice is to hold family members hostage. If they defect their family members will disappear.

  • James Johnson

    They are actually all spy


    Secret agents STAY WOKE

  • Soochul Song

    i wonder if the north koreans that went to south korea and was like wtf... this place is awesome. wtf is up with our ppl

  • Kap_DP

    Why are we holding up this farce while we watch hostages perform like everything is fine. This world is sick.

  • neth

    There needs to be a drone strike on all north korean officials, and then an invasian to save their citizens

  • DarkLight

    While all this happens, Russia is coming up with a new game "National Russian Olympian Roulette"

  • maheen567

    Some people just don't understand how important relations can be. If you want to take a thousand mile journey you take it by taking the first step. Having NK officials and merged Olympic team is literally a massive step. You cant just start by saying yea, now free all your people and free NK. Nuclear weapons can and will be disastrous, it so serious that it's not even appropriate to joke about wielding it. Like the USA did with Cuba, some peace is better than none. That's how we start. If you have grown up your whole life being taught propaganda, it doesn't make you evil, since you innocently believe in the Lie that's been warped around you. It's not the people's fault so stop blaming them for something they can't possibly do about.

  • Elton Joel

    North Korea is the socialist paradise CNN is dreaming of.

  • Seabass

    All of North Koreans high command needs to be put on trial for crimes against humanity.

  • Se Woong세웅

    We paid all of their expenses and more for their joining Pyeongchang Winter Olympic. We(and China for a different reason) gave them the oil to fly to Pyeongchang. We gave them foods and clothes as always. For that, North Korea kindly ignored hundreds of North Korean defections in Korea. Do you think we Korean want reunification that desperately? or we think they are one of us? Yes, only when the Kim's regime brought down completely. Only when after we kill him. Look at them they look just like us lol Still without demolition of communism we choose not to reunite.

  • Miguel Villeda

    sounds like my girlfriend should work for the north korens, she's good at keeping a tab on me........shit I gotta go now it was nice being YouTube for few minutes see you guys next year.

  • SuperBigblue19

    Social media users lashed out at CNN on Saturday after the network published a story declaring that Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, is "stealing the show at the Winter Olympics."The article centers on North Korea's surprise decision to send Kim Yo Jong as part of its delegation to the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the "diplomatic dance" she's performed at the Olympics thus far.But critics on Twitter took issue with CNN's story, accusing the network of glossing over North Korea and the Kim family's brutal human rights record and "whitewashing" the government's atrocities.CNN calls it "providing security " LOL what scumbags. They are being oppressed, fools. The N. Koreans don't need any security, only freedom. Clown News Network at it again.

  • Joshua Yeo

    How can we free these people T-T

  • Publius Cornelius Scipio

    And idiots actually think this Olympics will change things between the Koreas... Of course not! Dictators will always pull off these charades. Kim just wants the world to think positively of him. After the Olympics, everything will go back to normal. Never forget when Hitler hosted the Summer Olympics...

  • GameretteWeirdo

    Are you shitting me? They should have access to do whatever the hell they want. They're in South Korea for goodness sake.I feel bad for them. Like for real.

  • Ashly B

    Sounds like prisoners and not athletes

  • DarkLight

    If only i was able to watch this in another news channel.

  • MrMetonicus

    I'm not sure if CNN is reporting this as a negative. They seem to admire the steps taken to prevent defection. I bet if a North Korean athlete runs to a CNN reporter, the reporter would turn them over to DPRK officials.

  • Jcurvs99

    And Liberals were praising Kim Jong Un sister a few days ago and trashing their own Vice Presidents. Can they ever be on the right side of even the easiest issues.

  • betterdays when

    What a joke Kim is laughing in your faces but the show must go on right? There's no place in this world for communism so what's the point?

  • sophie bridgers

    Nice save after the "Kim Jong Un's sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics" CNN. You people are a disgrace to actual news.

  • MEDiAgamer

    Russia isnt allowed to attend, but North Korea is? They’re a way worse country than Russia.

  • Rogue Male

    Great to see CNN focusing on the sport and goodwill generated by the olympics.

  • Nathnael Tesfaye

    US is also under 24 Hour Watch But without people knowing it

  • vee bobic

    CNN or N K witch is worst ?

  • Kagiso Edward

    Kim Yo Jong and her moronic evil brother are starving their people to death, sending all opposition to gulag concentration camps where the innocent are worked to death, starved to death, fed to the dogs. A big eff u to Kim Yo Jong!

  • Darth KillsAll

    Desperation over athletes indicates weakness by north korea

  • nikiyen6

    lol at the people who say the US is "just as bad" as North Korea.

  • Dumb Goyische

    CNN=Fake news and spin !!

  • JC 40324

    But, wasn't CNN so in awe of Kim's sister and the happy NK cheerleaders?

  • Al Cd

    What a bunch paranoid lunatics.

  • Sleeve Of Wizard

    It appears as though CNN is reporting on something real for a change. Just think for a second, if USA was really the moral World Police they would step in and overthrow that guy. But there's no oil over there.

  • Phil J.L Fig

    North Korea shouldn’t even be allowed in the Olympics ... wtf

  • Daniel Ramsey

    Here is hoping there won't be a tyrannical North Korea for the next Olympics.

  • Tayfun Nalbantoglu

    This is such a load off bull. Research it yourself: the Olympians are top tier of the collective, and have wonderful lives in Pyongyang. The average person lives like crap; not these athletes

  • Doug Ballou

    The fact they are there says a lot. Not that CNN cares about the anything while Donald Trump is in office. Darkness can not conquer darkness, only light can do that.

  • ProleCenter

    The fact that Americans are so eager to believe wild propaganda tales about North Korea says a lot more about the lack of character and integrity of Americans.

  • R Coyote

    I trade one starving North korea family for one CNN producer, CNN anchor, CNN Owner. Who can we send first?

  • Zyz zyz

    So basically they're hostages.

  • Elias J.

    Good for the DPRK! Everyone needs to mind there own business & let all these athletes regardless of where there from enjoy there moment.

  • Edward Deal

    Freedom!? Never heard of it...

  • zagashow

    yeah 24 hr watch by CIA sure . They are looking real close for any other Propaganda Opotunity against North Korea .

  • Bernardino Battad

    Why would they even come I thought that they hated everyone or did they just want to one up people

  • Vinil Set

    CNN doing their job: FAKE NEWS!

  • Don

    sad thing is...there are actually people who think North Korea is 'great'.

  • lynn henkel

    This is 2018, wake up N. Korea. Let your people live .

  • AHellReign

    Stop treating them like babies ITS A COUNRTY LET IT DO WHAT IT WANTS

  • Lil Student Loan Debt

    They are treated like prisoners in NK, give them some freedom in SK.

  • Nickole Halpine

    Being an athlete from NK seems hard and isolating : ( It is sad they will not be able to partake in the whole experience of the games of this magnitude I cannot imagine living in constant fear
