Korea industrial park back in business

It's been more than four months since this border crossing between South and North Korea was so busy. That's been since the jointly-run Kaesong industrial park shut in April as tensions between them were rising sharply. On Monday South Korean workers started heading back over the border as the joint Kaesong industrial park reopened for a trial period. (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) SOUTH KOREAN WORKER CHO BONG-SOOK SAYING: "I cannot tell you how glad I am. I hope it can be a good opportunity for the South and North to harmonise." (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) 41-YEAR-OLD SOUTH KOREAN WORKER KIM CHEONG-JIN SAYING: "It should go well. There are many people who felt hurt, so I hope it doesn't happen again." Kaesong is the last remaining symbol of co-operation between the rival nations. It employs some 53,000 North Koreans. It generates about 90 million dollars a year in wages paid directly to the North's state-run agency which manages the zone.
