A South Korean advance team that includes Red Cross officials is now in North Korea to prepare for next week's reunion for families that have been separated by the Korean War. VOA's Brian Padden reports from Seoul that this rare reunion, that just weeks ago looked unlikely to happen, will offer the 200 selected participants the first opportunity to see their families in over half a century. And it could clear the way to further inter-Korean cooperation.
