    Seoul - It has been a month since an elderly South Korean mother and son said goodbye, almost certainly for a final time, to their North Korean husband and father after a brief reunion. The family had been separated since 1950, when the two Koreas went to war.

    The reunions late in October agreed upon by the two Koreas were a rare and brief symbol of warming relations between the two governments.
