Hundreds of Koreans on Monday participated in a week of temporary reunions of divided families at the Diamond Mountain resort in North Korea.
Many attendees have had no contact with each other since the 1950-53 war cemented the division of the Korean Peninsula into the North and South.
The weeklong event, the first of its kind in nearly three years, was arranged as the rival Koreas boost reconciliation efforts amid a diplomatic push to resolve a standoff over North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
Most of the participants in the reunions are in their 70s or older and are eager to see their loved ones once more before they die.
