In life and in death, Kim Dae-jung, the former South Korean president, has helped to inch the two Koreas towards warmer ties.

Kim's "sunshine policy" led to rapprochement between the rivals in the 90s and now his death has led to a cooling of tensions that have been rising in the peninsula for the last few months, with North Korea announcing plans to send a delegation to attend his state funeral.

Tony Birtley reports from Seoul.
