Korean family's tale of emotional reunion

Breaking News

The reunion programme began in the year 2000, but since then, only a fraction of the tens of thousands of Koreans on the waiting list have so far been allowed to take part.

Last month, after a two-year gap, the latest meeting of relatives from opposite sides of the border was held in the North Korean tourist resort at Mount Kumgang.

Just 200 families, 100 from each side, were given the chance to see their long-lost loved ones for the first time in more than half a century.
