Koreas hold new round of reunions for war-separated families Updated: 2014-02-24 15:35:26 KST

The two Koreas are holding a fresh round of reunions for families separated by the Korean War at North Korea's Mount Kumgang resort.
On the second day of the event on Monday, the family members had three chances to meet -- individual meetings in the morning, a group luncheon and a group meeting in the afternoon.
The group meeting is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. Korea time, which is right about now, and it will continue for about two hours.
This new round of reunions is much larger in scale than the first, involving nearly 500 divided family members from both sides of the border.
The families will hold a final meeting on Tuesday morning for an hour before they part again.
