S. Koreans Head North for Family Reunion

Hundreds of South Koreans prepared to travel across the heavily armed border into North Korea on Tuesday for the first round of a reunion with family members separated for more than six decades since the Korean War ended in 1953. The two nations agreed to resume the meetups for the first time since February 2014 after the end of a border standoff in August. More than 65,000 South Koreans were eligible but only 100 were chosen for the reunions, which were organized by the Red Cross. Of those 100, 10 have since died or become too ill to travel.
