    A group of South Korean journalists have departed Wonsan in North Korea to witness the dismantling of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

    North Korea invited a handful of journalists from a number of countries to the dismantling, as it upholds its pledge to discontinue nuclear tests.

    North Korea had originally rejected members of the South Korean media, but reversed course as a sign of warming ties between the two countries.
