South Korean officials said North Korea has informed them it will restore a military communications hot line severed 12 days ago. The Defense Ministry said Friday that the North reported the hot line will be operational again starting Saturday. The North Korean military cut the last remaining hot line to protest joint US-South Korean military exercises taking place across South Korea. That left the two Koreas without any quick means of direct communication. Washington and Seoul call the exercises routine defense drills, but Pyongyang has branded them as preparations for an attack on the North.
