Hundreds of North Korean female cheerleaders arrived in South Korea on Wednesday for a trip that will mark their first appearance in 13 years at an international sports event hosted by the South.

A total of 229 cheerleaders were among the 280-member delegation that came to the South via a western cross-border land route at 9:31 a.m. , according to a pool report.

The delegation, led by Sports Minister Kim Il-guk, also includes three other officials from the National Olympic Committee, 26 taekwondo demonstrators and 21 journalists.

With smiles on their faces, female cheerleaders who look to be in their 20s showed up at the inter-Korean border checkpoint in Paju, just south of the border, wearing red coats with a small North Korean flag on the left chest and black fur hats.
