A combination photo shows (L) Heo Gyeong-ok, 87, who was one of the participants in the latest inter-Korean reunion for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War posing at her house in Seoul March 6, 2014 and (R) holding a polaroid picture taken during the reunion with her younger sister living in the North. Heo said that during the Korean War, her husband left home to seek refuge in the South and she followed him with their one-year-old son, leaving her siblings behind. "I don't have a lot of memories with my two younger siblings because they were just 13 and 15 when I left home. I've been applying for the family reunions for 14 years and finally got my chance this year. I thought I wouldn't be able to recognize them if we got to meet. When I met them this time, I asked them our parents' names and they remembered. I thought, "Yes, they really are my siblings," Heo said. The latest family reunion for those separated in North and South Korea was held on February 20-25 at the Mount Kumgang resort just north of the border and a total of 813 family members met in tears and joy. On March 17, a report on North Korea will be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. Pictures taken March 6, 2014 REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: SOCIETY CONFLICT)
