Korea, US Join Hands to Excavate War Remains

South Korean and U.S. officials are working together to excavate the remains of American soldiers killed during Korean War.

In Hwacheon, there was a bloody battle in June 1951 between U.S. forces of the 7th and 24th army divisions of the U.S. 9th Corps and Chinese troops backing North Korea, it said. 

The joint recovery team has found a collection of bone fragments and belongings in its latest work, it said. 

It will take at least six months to fully identify the bones, said Jay Silverstein, an archaeologist working with the Hawaii-based JPAC.
