Korean families reunite decades after war

Korean families separated during the Korean War have reunited after more than six decades.

Reunions began on Monday at North Korea's Mount Kumgang resort between 89 South Koreans and their family members from North Korea.

There will be a total of six reunions, including a group reunion and a welcoming dinner hosted by North Korea on Monday, followed by an individual reunion and lunch on Tuesday and a farewell lunch on Wednesday. A second round will run from Friday to Sunday, when 83 North Koreans expect to reunite with family members from the South.

The reunions honor a pledge made by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at their summit in April.
