South Korea re-enacts Incheon Landing

Ships, planes and marines from South Korea, the United States and Australia have re-enacted the Incheon Landing, the battle that turned the tide in the Korean War.

The event took place despite objections from the authorities in Pyongyang.

About 14,000 people, including veterans of the 1950-53 conflict from nine countries, marked the 60th anniversary of the daring Incheon Landing which was led by US General Douglas MacArthur.
