Going home

 
South Korean honor guards hand over caskets to Chinese guards at a ceremony at Incheon International Airport on Sunday. The caskets contain 117 sets of remains of Chinese soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War. It was the seventh such repatriation ceremony. Of the remains repatriated Sunday, 103 sets were excavated last year from Arrowhead Ridge, a battle site inside the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas. Others were uncovered in other parts of South Korea. Since the two countries agreed on the return of the Chinese troop remains in 2014 in a gesture of their friendship, Seoul has returned 716 sets of remains of Chinese soldiers, including the latest 117 sets.
