Vice President Mike Pence will greet the remains of USA service members returning to the U.S. on Wednesday during a ceremony in Hawaii.
Monday's reports about ongoing activities at Sanumdong are the latest to indicate that North Korea is still working on its nuclear and missile facilities, despite ongoing talks with the USA about disarmament.

The remains of close to 5,000 USA soldiers have yet to be recovered from North Korea. Gen. Kim Do Gyun, said the two sides had a common view in principle on disarming a jointly controlled area at Panmunjom, removing some guard posts from the Demilitarized Zone that bisects the countries, halting hostile acts along their disputed sea boundary, and conducting joint searches for soldiers missing from the 1950-53 Korean War in DMZ areas. National anthems of the United States and South Korea were played, and the caskets were given a 21-gun salute by USA riflemen.
