Man who forced U.S. to reveal Korean War massacre dies at 91

Chung Eun-yong, an ex-policeman whose half-century quest for justice for his two slain children led the U.S. Army in 2001 to acknowledge the 1950-53 Korean War refugee massacre at Nogeun-ri, has died, the No Gun Ri International Peace Foundation reported. He was 91.

Chung, who died on Aug. 1, had been in failing health in recent years.

The Nogeun-ri killings occurred in the first weeks of the 1950-53 war.
