[ News, Nation, February 5 2008] Koreas' separated families exchange video messages

Korean families separated for more than a half century by the division of Korea Tuesday (Feb. 5) exchanged videos through the Red Cross in a pilot project that is planned to run on a regular basis, the Unification Ministry said.

Red Cross officials of the two Koreas exchanged videotaped messages from the 40 separated families -- 20 each from the South and North -- through liaison officers at the truce village of Panmunjeom, the ministry said in a press release.

Sixty separated families will be allowed to send video messages once every three months starting in March, according to the ministry.
