South Korean Buddhist Monks, US Aid Arrive in North Korea

North Korea has opened its borders for goodwill gestures from South Korea and the United States.

South Korean monks arrived in Pyongyang Saturday to help celebrate the creation of a religious relic important to Buddhists on both sides of the demilitarized zone.

The 37 South Korean monks arrived by plane and were greeted at the airport by their North Korean brethren.

The monks are scheduled to participate in a service at a North Korean temple marking the 1,000th anniversary of the relic’s creation.
