S Korea security drills help prepare for Winter Olympics

South Korean and US Marines are brushing up on their cold-weather defence capabilities in order to provide security for the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

    The Winter Olympic Games in South Korea are just over 50 days away, and security is a major concern after North Korea tested another intercontinental ballistic missile just last month.

    US and South Korean Marines have been conducting military drills designed to enhance combat readiness in freezing conditions.
