A combination photo shows (L) Kim Sun-yeon, 80, 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 4, 2014 and (R) holding a picture of her older sister who died last year, which was given to her by her nephew from North Korea. Kim said that during the war, when her family left their hometown to seek refuge, her big sister went missing and her mother died. At the recent family reunion she met her big sister?s son. Kim said: "The North Korean People's Army killed a lot of people during the war, so I thought my sister died as well. But last year when I registered for the family reunions, I found out that she was alive. If the reunions had taken place last year in September like they were supposed to, I could've met my sister. But the reunions were postponed to this February and my sister died in the past few months. I have so many things I want to tell her but I can't anymore." 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 4, 2014. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: SOCIETY CONFLICT)
