Image of Asia: Wanting joint Korean factory park to reopen

In this photo by Ahn Young-joon, South Korean officials whose companies had factories at the joint industrial park in Kaesong, North Korea, weep during a rally on the Unification Bridge in Paju, South Korea. About 1,000 participants gathered for the rally to insist the South Korean government and North Korean authorities normalize the operation of the Kaesong complex. The South shut the park in response to the North's rocket launch earlier this year, and Pyeongyang expelled the workers, had its military take over the complex and vowed last week it would liquidate the remaining South Korean assets there.
