Return of ancient books


A vehicle carrying 1,200 ancient Korean books returned by Japan after almost a century carries its precious cargo escorted by a royal palace guard. The books, which arrived in two batches at Incheon International Airport, were taken to the National Palace Museum of Korea in Seoul. By Byun Sun-goo

일본이 거의 1세기 만에 반환한 조선왕조 도서 1천2백여 책을 실은 화물차가 의장대의 호위를 받으며 이동하고 있다. 두 번에 걸쳐 나눠서 인천공항에 도착한 도서는 서울의 국립고궁박물관으로 이송됐다. 변선구 기자
