A U.S. plane flies to North Korea to pick up over 50 sets of remains of U.S. service members who were killed during the Korean war.
The operation, which has been confirmed by the White House, follows weeks of negotiations between U.S. and North Korean diplomats.
After the remains are received, they will be sent to Osan Air Base in South Korea before being shipped to Hawaii for forensic identification.
An estimated 5,300 U.S. troops are still unaccounted for in North Korea.
