Officials say North Korea returning remains shows improved relations

A US military plane made a rare flight into North Korea on Friday to retrieve 55 cases said to contain the remains of US service members missing since the Korean War — a move US officials hailed as a sign of improving relations between the two longtime enemies.

The Air Force C-17 left Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, to fly to the coastal North Korean city of Wonsan to pick up the remains before returning to the base on what was the 65th anniversary of the end of hostilities in the war.

Troops from different UN countries stood as an honor guard at Osan, as white-gloved troops in different uniforms descended the aircraft’s ramp holding the cases, which were wrapped in the UN flag.
