(London Guardian) North Korea has decided to support a proposed walk across the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas by prominent women, including Gloria Steinem, and organizers say they hope South Korea will give its approval as well.
Co-organizer Christine Ahn told the Associated Press that North Korea gave its permission this week after she visited Pyongyang. The walk proposed for 24 May is a call for reunification of the two countries.
The DMZ is the world's most fortified border, with the two Koreas still technically at war. The walk would mark the 70th anniversary of the division of the Korean peninsula.
