Koreas Agree to Family Reunions        06/22 06:03

   North and South Korea have agreed to hold temporary reunions of families 
divided by the 1950-53 Korean War in August as they boost reconciliation 
efforts amid a diplomatic push to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis.

   SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North and South Korea have agreed to hold 
temporary reunions of families divided by the 1950-53 Korean War in August as 
they boost reconciliation efforts amid a diplomatic push to resolve the North 
Korean nuclear crisis.

   Seoul's Unification Ministry said Friday the reunions will take place at 
North Korea's Diamond Mountain resort from Aug. 20 to 26.

   It said the countries will each send 100 participants to the reunions. 
People with mobility problems will be allowed to bring a relative to help them.

   Such temporary reunions are highly emotional as most wishing to take part 
are elderly people who are eager to see their loved ones before they die. The 
families were driven apart during the turmoil of the war.
