Kaesong industrial complex reopens

16 September 2013 Last updated at 02:26 BST

The Kaesong industrial complex in North Korea is reopening, five months after it was closed due to political tensions with the South.

Work at the complex stopped in April when the North withdrew its workers amid high political tension.

The zone, just inside North Korea, is home to 123 South Korean factories that employ more than 50,000 North Koreans.

It is the last functioning inter-Korean joint project and a key source of revenue for Pyongyang.

The BBC's Lucy Williamson reports from the border between the two countries.
