Dozens of elderly South Koreans entered North Korea for a long-awaited reunion with relatives separated since the Korean War nearly seven decades ago. The reunions were approved by the leaders of the two Koreas at a historic summit in April.
Pyongyang has rejected South Korea's hopes for dialogue, saying inter-Korean talks are off the table. North Korea launched two missiles into the sea in protest of joint US-South Korean military drills.
North Korea has test-fired its fifth missile in less than two weeks. The launch came a day after US President Donald Trump said he had received a beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un apologizing for previous tests.
North Korea has conducted two ballistic missile tests in less than a week, in violation of UN resolutions. The missile tests come as the US and North Korea are trying to restart stalled denuclearization talks.
The missile tests, which have been condemned by the German government, were in reaction to war games being conducted by the US and South Korea. The North has slammed the maneuvers as a violation of peace efforts.
