Flag error offends North Koreans

North Korea women's football match against Colombia is delayed as their players refuse to take to the field after their photos are incorrectly shown on the big screen beside the flag of South Korea.

The error occurred while the players were warming up and led to the match being delayed by one hour and five minutes.
