North Korea's Kim Jong Un to send sister to Winter Olympics
Kim Jong Un's sister will be part of the North Korean delegation.
Kim Jong Un's sister will be part of the North Korean delegation which will attend the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics taking place in South Korea, Seoul has confirmed.
North Korea informed the South that Kim Yo Jong will travel to Pyeongchang for the games, alongside nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam who will lead the delegation.
It is anticipated that the group will arrive in South Korea on Friday.
Kim Yo Jong was promoted by her brother last year to a new post in the North's ruling party that analysts said showed her activities are more substantive and more important than previously thought.
North Korea will have 22 athletes competing at the games but it is not thought that many will be able to compete for honours in Pyeongchang.
