Monks cross North Korea border to honour ancient Buddhist relic

Buddhist monks from South Korea have crossed into North Korea for a ceremony to honour an ancient Buddhist relic.

Thirty seven monks made the journey to mark the 1000th anniversary of scriptural carving.

The monks are the first civilians to make the trip to North Korea since two attacks on the South last year.
