South Korean police reunite stolen shoes with owners

A hoard of 1,700 pairs shoes have gone on display in South Korea, in the hope their owners will come to reclaim them.

Police believe the suspect, a second-hand shop owner who was arrested earlier this month, stole the shoes from mourners at funerals over a number of years.

John Sudworth reports.
