Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - The high-level North Korean delegation to the Olympic closing ceremony, including a general thought to be the mastermind of a deadly attack on a South Korean ship, crossed the border to South Korea on Sunday, the Yonhap news agency reported.

General Kim Yong Chol, former head of North Korea‘s intelligence agency, the reconnaissance bureau, and a current vice chair of the ruling Workers‘ Party‘s central committee, crossed the inter-Korean border with seven other members of the delegation, according to Yonhap.

Kim is accused of having planned the 2010 torpedoing of a South Korean warship, which resulted in the deaths of 46 people. News of his planned attendance triggered protests in South Korea.

The delegation will attend the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday evening and there has been speculation about a possible meeting with a US delegation on the sidelines.

Ivanka Trump, US President Donald Trump‘s daughter, is also attending the closing ceremony and arrived in South Korea with national security official Allison Hooker, who met Kim in Pyongyang in 2014.
