• South Korea says it has decided to resume sending aid to North Korea through the UN children's agency UNICEF.    

  • South Korea halted its UNICEF donations last year when two deadly incidents blamed on North Korea — a ship sinking and an artillery attack on an island — killed 50 South Koreans and spiked tension.
  • Seoul's Unification Ministry said Monday it will donate about USD 5.7 million to UNICEF programs to send medicines and vaccines and help malnourished North Korean children.  
  • South Korea approved a shipment to North Korea through the World Health Organization.
