Korean brothers to meet after 64 years

About 170 estranged relatives from North and South Korea are preparing to meet each other over the next few days for the first time in more than six decades.

The chosen individuals - around half from each side - will bring their families to a North Korean tourist site, where they will spend a few days together.

It is the first time in three years that cross-border family reunions have been held.

South Korean Lee Du-young was 12 years old the last time he saw his older brother, Lee Sun-young.

Now 76, the younger Mr Lee spoke to BBC News about the prospect of being reunited for the first time since boyhood.
