SEOUL, June 27 (Korea Bizwire) – On June 25, 1950, North Korea invaded its southern neighbor. The invasion quickly turned into a global conflict with the U.S.-friendly states on one side, and Soviet allies on another. The fighting lasted until July 27, 1953, leaving approximately 1 million military casualties and 2.5 million civilians killed and wounded on both sides.
On Saturday, Korea commemorated the 66th anniversary of the war, remembering the sacrifices and reminding ourselves, once more, that war should never happen again.
Here are some photos from the events that took place over the weekend.
