Koreas mark 60 years since armistice

North and South Korea commemorate 60th anniversary of armistice that ended hostilities between two nations.

    North and South Korea are commemorating the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended hostilities in the 1950-53 Korean War in which hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians were killed on both sides. 

    The war itself never officially ended; and the truce has been broken several times in the decades since.
