Koreas Won't March Consecutively

A day after International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge announced that North and South Korea would march in the Opening Ceremonies consecutively--rather than together as in Athens in 2004 and Sydney in 2000--organizers announced another change.

Instead of marching immediately behind North Korea, South Korea will march four positions later, between Montenegro and Chile, Summer Games officials said about 2 hours before the Ceremonies.

Rogge expressed disappointment Thursday that the two nations would not march under one flag, calling it a setback for peace. No explanation was offered for the additional change Friday.
