Remains of Forcibly Mobilized Koreans to Return from Sakhalin

The remains of Koreans forcibly mobilized by Japan to labor in Russia's Sakhalin region will be brought back to the country.
The Ministry of the Interior said the remains of eleven people will be returned under an agreement with the Russian government and be buried at a national cemetery in Cheonan.

They were excavated in Sakhalin on Monday and Tuesday and a memorial was held at the site. They will arrive by air at Incheon International Airport.
South Korea first sealed an agreement with Russia to recover and return the remains of Koreans in May 2013. As of last year, the remains of 32 people were recovered.
Numerous Koreans were forcibly taken to Sakhalin to toil under harsh conditions in mines, at construction sites and factories between 1938 and 1945.
