North and South Korean families to reunite

Dozens of Korean families separated by the war in the early 1950s are preparing to be reunited for the first time in six decades.

More than 65,000 South Koreans were eligible for reunions with relatives in the North but only 100 were chosen. Of those hundred, 10 have since died or become too ill to travel.

The rest will travel to the North Korean resort of Mount Kumgang, where they will have six two-hour meetings with their relatives.

Stephen Evans reports from Seoul.
