South Koreans head North for 16-day on-site rail inspection

Transport ministry says visit will allow ROK to "assess the deterioration" of the DPRK's railways

North and South Korea on Friday began a 16-day on-site survey of railways on the east and west coast of the northern part of the peninsula.

A South Korean train carrying a 28-member inspection team crossed the military demarcation line (MDL) at 0909 local time to begin an 18-day tour of North Korea, the Ministry of Unification (MOU) said.
