Koreas agree on talks to reunite families

North and South Korea are set to hold talks on reuniting families separated by the Korean War.

    North and South Korea are about to hold talks on reuniting families separated by the Korean War.

    The meetings were suspended three years ago.

    But Friday's talks are seen as a sign that tension is easing.

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Seoul.
