The number of North Koreans arriving in the South has surged because of economic hardship, passing 20,000 at the weekend, South Korea says.

Until 1999 fewer than 1,000 North Koreans had made the journey to the South, but an influx began after famine hit in the mid-1990s.

In 2009 a record 2,927 North Koreans defected to the South, Seoul's Unification Ministry said.

The Koreas remain technically at war in the wake of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The border between the two neighbours is heavily fortified, so most new arrivals make a long and difficult journey via the northern border with China.

China has a repatriation agreement with Pyongyang, so North Koreans must make their way to a third country in order to move on to South Korea.

Once there, they are given resettlement training and help with finding housing by the South Korean government.

Almost half of the arrivals have come in the last three years.
