Laid to rest


The Defense Ministry on Wednesday held a ceremony to enshrine the remains of 365 Korean War soldiers in Seoul National Cemetery in southern Seoul. The remains from the 1950-53 conflict include 288 sets of remains that were discovered in frontline and rear areas and 12 sets retrieved in the demilitarized zone. Personnel from the ministry and Army and Marine Corps excavated 288 sets of war remains at the sites of 85 notorious battles, including ones in the counties of Yanggu, Inje, Cheorwon, Chilgok and the city of Paju in Gyeonggi from March through November. Twelve sets of remains were recovered by the military from the DMZ during operations to clear land mines and build a road at Arrowhead Ridge, or Hill 281 - where the Koreas will excavate remains from April to October.
