North and South Korea renew plans to reunite families separated by war

South and North Korean families separated by more than six decades of war, will have another chance to reunite in October. A deal was reached between the two countries after nearly 24 hours of negotiations. Only 100 families will be selected from each side to meet. North and South Korea are legally still at war since the conflict from 1950-53 ended in a truce, rather than a peace treaty.
