A senior South Korean official said on Friday that Seoul is seeking to form a joint women's ice hockey team with North Korea to participate in next month's Winter Olympics being hosted by the South.

Some of South Korea's former Olympic champions will take part in the PyeongChang Olympic torch relay on Sunday as it passes through the home stadium of the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Yonhap said South Korea has asked the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Hockey Federation for permission to expand the roster of its women's hockey team, to bring in North Korean players.

Bhogi celebrations smoke hits flight, rail services in Chennai
Elsewhere in the city, motorists drove their vehicles with headlights on due to the smoke cover which descended on the city. The government conducts regular awareness campaigns ahead of Bhogi to promote smoke-free celebrations during the festival.

The ministry said it will review the North's proposal and send a response. At that meeting they agreed to hold military talks and send a North Korean delegation of officials, athletes, cheerleaders, journalists and others to the Olympics. Joining teams would make that issue moot and allow even more North Korean athletes to compete.

The South has also offered to combine with the North for the opening and closing ceremonies, with the two countries marching together under a unified flag. South Korea is grouped with Sweden, Switzerland and Japan in the women's tournament.
