Forgotten solider returns in 56 years as remains

A skull and several pieces of bone believed to be those of a solider killed during the 1950-53 Korean War were carefully unveiled in Hongcheon of Gangwon-do province in an uncharacteristically calm atmosphere.

After weeks of digging and sifting this remote mountain in Hongcheon, some 100 km east of Seoul, on the recommendation of a local resident, the Defense Ministry’s task force on searching war remains found them earlier this week.
