South Korean Lee Son-hyang, 88, left, and her North Korean brother Lee Yoon Geun ,72, get emotional as they reunite during the Separated Family Reunion Meeting at Diamond Mountain resort in North Korea, Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014. The rival nations struck a deal last week to go ahead with brief meetings of war-divided families, though there's wariness in Seoul that Pyongyang could back out again. As they waited anxiously in the days leading up to the trip, many elderly Koreans had been unsure whether they would be able to see their long-lost relatives' faces before they die.

Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights who attended the Jan. 18, 2014 meeting, but one month later Museveni appears to have changed his mind, saying through a spokesman in February 2014 that he would sign the bill "to protect Ugandans from social deviants."

In this Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 photo, Hiroshi Ashitomi, a retired welfare case worker, shows a protest map of Henoko where the U.S. and Japan agreed to relocate Marine Corps Air Station Futenma and plan to build an airstrip in the water dugongs and other sea creatures inhabit at his tent on the beach in Nago, Okinawa. For 10 years, He has been coming to the beach near his Okinawa home every day to sit. He loves nothing more than the sea around the island, the rare sightings of dugongs and sea turtles, the tan-colored sand and the crags out by the breakwater. Like many Okinawans, including leading politicians and media, Ashitomi opposes a plan to move the controversial Marine base to a less crowded part of the southern Japanese island. The proposed location for the new airstrip - Ashitomi’s favorite beach - is the epicenter of the opposition. (AP Photo/Eric Talmadge)
