S. Korea OKs additional humanitarian aid to N. Korea
SEOUL, April 4 (Yonhap) -- South Korea approved additional humanitarian aid to North Korea to help ease its chronic food shortages despite lingering political tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula, an official said Monday.

The decision marks the third instance of civic aid toward North Korean children since November when Pyongyang's artillery attack on a frontline South Korean island killed four South Koreans.
