U.S. GIVEN REMAINS BY NORTH KOREA

North Korean border guards handed over remains believed to be those of a U.S. soldier today, 44 years after the fighting stopped in the Korean War.

The aluminum casket holding the remains was given to a U.N. honor guard at Panmunjom, the border village inside the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea.

The remains will be sent to the U.S. Army Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii.

About 8,100 U.S. servicemen remain unaccounted for from the 1950-53 war.
