The North Korean Olympic Team is showing its’ displeasure with their British hosts over an incident in which the flag of South Korea was inadvertently flown when the North Korean women’s volleyball team took the court in a preliminary match. “The North Koreans are refusing to eat anything,” said Joshua Litmann, associate head of the British Olympic Organizing Committee. “We’ve offered them meals throughout each day but, they are refusing to eat,” he added.
Some organizers are not concerned and have stated that the North Koreans not having any food for days is much like their conditions back home. “There isn’t any need to worry,” said David Stockdell, Committee Co-Chairman. “Back home they don’t eat for days or a week, so this should be no big deal,” he chimed.
