Koreans remember 'forgotten war'

Veterans mark 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War.

    Veterans of the 1950-53 Korean War have been marking the 60th anniversary of the start of the conflict.

    An estimated three millions people died, many of them civilians, in one of the most brutal conflicts since the end of the Second World War.

    But despite the high death toll and its legacy of division on the Korean peninsula, the conflict has become known to many simply as the "forgotten war".
