The family of a French Korean War veteran who died in March arrived in Korea on Thursday with the ashes of the former soldier. It was his wish to be buried in the land he fought to protect. Musician Lee Seung-chul met the family members at Incheon International Airport. He was friends with Leon Bernard and will attend his funeral at a UN cemetery in Busan on Friday.
