AR­MISTICE

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

On this day in 1953, the three­year Korean War ended with the sign­ing of an ar­mistice in Pan­munjon. Dur­ing the con­flict, United Na­tions and South Korean forces had 500,000 troops killed, wounded, or miss­ing in ac­tion. The dead in­cluded 516 Cana­di­ans. De­spite the ar­mistice, Korea re­mains sharply di­vided along the heav­ily for­ti­fied 38th par­al­lel.
