Two Koreas still at odds over Olympics team-up

A 21/2-hour round of talks between North and South Korea on formation of a joint Olympic team broke down in an bitter shouting match Monday and no new meeting was scheduled.

The last hour of the meeting was so chaotic - with both sides speaking simultaneously or one side jeering at the other - that reporters covering the talks had difficulties recording the exchanges.

The Monday meeting was the first since the North Korean delegation walked out of similar talks here April 9. The date of the next meeting will be discussed later through letters.
