      North Korea last Friday canceled a joint taekwondo demonstration by athletes from the two Koreas at the Vatican.

      The demonstration was to take place on Wednesday in front of Pope Francis ahead of the annual World Taekwondo Grand Prix Series in Rome, Italy.

      The North Korea-led International Taekwondo Federation told South Korea-led World Taekwondo of its decision to withdraw from the event citing a joint South Korea-U.S. aerial drill dubbed Max Thunder that has irked the regime.
