Lists of names exchanged for Korean family reunification

North and South Korea exchanged lists of families to be reunited in the North next week, Yonhap news agency reported Wednesday, citing a South Korean government official.

Unification Ministry spokeswoman Lee Jong-joo said in a briefing that the planned reunifications will occur after six decades of separation.

The lists contain the names of 100 people from each side, and the reunions will be held from October 30 to November 5 at the two countries' joint mountain resort in the North, Mount Kumgang.

Lee said 26 South Korean civilians crossed the border Wednesday into the North to tidy up the facilities at the resort.
