Seoul's Unification Ministry says North Korea has agreed to let South Koreans back across the border to work at factories at a joint industrial zone in the north. Ministry spokeswoman Lee Jong-joo says the North relayed a message saying it will allow cross-border traffic to and from the Kaesong complex. The full reopening Tuesday comes four days after Pyongyang shut down the border last week, stranding hundreds of South Koreans who work in Kaesong and live in South Korea. The North partially reopened the border yesterday but only for South Koreans leaving the north.
