2nd day of Korean family reunions begins at Mt. Kumgang Updated: 2014-02-21 09:35:02 KST

There are sure to be plenty more tears of joy and sorrow today as the second day of reunions for families separated since the Korean War is underway at the North's Mt. Kumgang resort.
More than eighty families from both sides of the border will meet on three separate occasions this Friday, with each session lasting for two hours.
The first, individual meetings between separated family members, began at 9 this morning that's about an hour ago and will run until 11a.m..
They'll follow that up with a group luncheon at noon, and then a third event that begins at 4 p.m., where all separated families will gather together for a ceremony.
This first round of reunions ends Saturday, and will be followed by a second round with new participants from Sunday through Tuesday.
