Separated Families of Two Koreas Hold Tearful Reunions

SEOUL (Yonhap) -- For the first time in nearly two years, hundreds of South and North Koreans had emotional reunions with long-lost family members living across the border, but they had to separate three days after brief reunions.

The reunions were held in two separate groups at the North's eastern resort of Mt. Kumgang. The first segment was held Sept. 26-28, while the second took place from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.
