War dead: Soldiers carry the newly recovered remains of Korean War dead to entomb at the National Cemetery in Tongjak-dong, Seoul, Tuesday. The military retrieved 130 sets of remains in the first half of this year, but it honored only 64 sets, excluding 66 believed to be North Koreans. /Korea Times 07-25-2006 20:06

Empress Myongsong: This photo taken by a German visiting Korea from 1894 to 1895 could be Empress Myongsong of the Choson Kingdom. Since its caption reads “Die Ermodete Konigin,” meaning murdered empress in German, it increases the possibility that the woman could be the empress, who was brutally killed by Japanese on an October night in 1895. The woman in the photo, very serious with sharp eyes, looks different from other photos assumed to be of the empress, but the impression it gives matches those recorded by foreign envoys who met the empress. /Yonhap 07-25-2006 20:40
