(LEAD) N. Korea OKs private agencies to ship medical aid to N. Korea
SEOUL, Feb. 23 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will allow private aid agencies to ship medical supplies to North Korea, an official said Thursday, despite lingering tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The decision made Wednesday gave a green light to Nanum International and the Eugene Bell Foundation to send a set of X-ray equipment and tuberculosis-related medical supplies, respectively, to the North, according to the official from the Unification Ministry.
