SEOUL: A convoy of buses carrying 435 South Koreans crossed into North Korea yesterday for a brief reunion with relatives, despite tensions after an exchange of fire.
The reunions, which were to give families the first chance to see each other in 60 years, were due to take place yesterday afternoon.

''The reunions will go ahead as scheduled despite the firing,'' said Lee Jong-joo, of the South Korean Unification Ministry.
