The Korean Ambassador was joined by staff and representatives of ZEESM TL, the Oé-Cusse community and others to remember five Koreans who died in a river accident in 2003.

Peacekeepers Maj. Byong Jo Min, Maj. Jin Kyu Park, Cpl. Jong Hun Back, Cpl. Hee Choi and Cpl. Kim Jung Joung were Korean peacekeepers who were swept away by a swift-moving river.

 

“For all of us here, their memory shall be imperishable.”
