Reunions feature tears


Park Yang-gon, right, a 53-year-old from South Korea, is reunited with his elder brother, Yang-su, 58, in North Korea’s Mount Kumgang Hotel. Park Yang-su was abducted to North Korea while working on a fishing boat called the Odaeyang 61 in 1972. A total of 82 South Koreans were reunited on Feb. 20 with 178 North Korean relatives - siblings, children and cousins - they haven’t seen since being separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.
