S. Koreans leave for DPRK to attend family reunions

Hundreds of South Korean family members have crossed into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, to meet with relatives they have not seen for more than 60 years. The first batch of about 390 members of 96 South Korean families are travelling to the Mount Kumgang resort on the DPRK’s east coast. The reunions, the first since February 2014, are the result of the landmark deal the two countries reached on August 25th this year to ease military tensions, and resume the reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.
