The border between North Korea and South Korea remained closed Saturday while North Korea allowed five people to return to the south. Another 397 South Koreans remained stranded at an industrial park in Kaesong on the North Korean side of the border, the Yonhap news agency reported. One of the five was South Korean, apparently released because he was to get married. The group also included three Chinese and an Australian. Pyongyang closed the border Monday in a protest against a joint U.S.-South Korean military exercise. That closing ended Tuesday. There was no explanation for Friday’s closing. Tensions between North Korea, one of the world’s most closed societies, and the rest of the world have increased because of its announcement of plans to launch a satellite, which military officials elsewhere have suggested is actually cover for a test of a long-range missile.
