About 250 South Koreans crossed into the North Saturday to meet long-lost relatives, in the second round of current reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 civil war.

Most were in their 70s, some in ambulance vans or wheelchairs, making the trip to the North Korea's Mount Kumkang to meet kin whom they have not talked with or seen in more than 60 years.

The second round of reunions was requested by South Korean families, while the first one that took place earlier in the week was made at the application of North Korean families.

The events bring them together for a total of 12 hours, over six sessions of meals or time at a hotel.

The war ended with an armistice, rather than a peace agreement, and two governments remain bitter enemies in a virtual state of war. (DPA)
