The Games officially opened at Beijing's national stadium. During the politically charged opening, the cauldron was lit by a Chinese skier who is part of China's Uyghur Muslim minority. An estimated one million are being held in mass internment camps, prompting many western leaders to boycott the Games. Jamie Yuccas has the latest.
