Trump Kim summit: Korea war veteran's question for US president

James N Butcher was only 17 years old when he volunteered to serve in the Korean war, in 1953.

Now, 85, he lives in Washington DC, from where he watched the historic meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

He is surprised by Mr Trump's claim that "mothers and fathers" of missing soldiers called him asking about their remains. The White House has not responded to the BBC's request for clarification of who the president heard from.
