Abducted Fisherman's Return Stirs Mixed Emotions - 20 Nov 2013
Images from South Korea of people whose family members were abducted by North Korea in 1972.

The recent return of a South Korean fisherman abducted by North Korea more than 40 years ago has reopened wounds in a small
island village that lost 17 other men in a Cold War conflict that still simmers today.

Jeon Wook-pyo, who returned to South Korea in September after escaping from the North through China, has since paid a brief visit to
Nongso - a remote outpost of around 170 people on the southern island of Geoje, about five hours drive from Seoul - but he won't be settling back there.
