A group of touring Russians have made a rare crossing at the tense border separating DPRK and South Korea.

Thirty-two Russians drove five jeeps across the border on Saturday at the Kaesong Industrial Park, a joint DPRK and South Korean economic development project on the border between the two states. Some of them are ethnic Koreans based in Russia, and some are Russians who have family links to the DPRK. 

They plan to drive the length of the Korean peninsula in a gesture in support of peace and reunification. The touring group arrived in DPRK on August 8th. They are scheduled to continue their trip until reaching the highest peak in South Korea, Mount Halla.
