Remains of US soldiers killed in Korean war flown home from North

The remains of more than 50 American soldiers, who died during the Korean War, are being flown back to the United States after a formal ceremony at a south Korean airbase.

The repatriation is part of the agreement made last month between President Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, but comes as new intelligence suggests North Korea isn’t keeping its promise on denuclearisation.
