South Korea begins repatriating China's Korean War soldiers

South Korea has started repatriating the remains of over 400 Chinese soldiers who were killed during the 1950 to 1953 Korean War.

It is the first time such action has been taken directly between the two countries without going through North Korea.

The caskets are expected to be handed over to China at an airport ceremony on Friday morning.
