N Korean gesture

North Korea returned the remains of 17 US servicemen killed in the 1950-53 Korean War, in what it described as a humanitarian gesture to its sworn enemy, Reuter reports from Panmunjom. Colonel Edward O'Dowd accepted the remains during a ceremony at the border village of Panmunjom.

South Korea's Foreign Minister, Han Sung Joo, said that North Korea should consider the US attack on Iraq as a warning of what could happen if it does not clear up suspicions about its nuclear programme.
