Widow's six-decade wait for closure

22 December 2013 Last updated at 02:04 GMT

The remains of an American army medic have been returned to his wife - more than six decades after they parted.

Sergeant Joseph E Gantt fought in the Korean war, where he was injured then taken captive. He later died in a PoW camp in 1951.

His remains were only recently identified, leading to their return.

Lucas de Jong reports.
