Image of Asia: South Korea remembers dead on Memorial Day

In this photo by Ahn Young-joon, South Korean Park Sang-ock weeps at the gravestone of his father Park Bong-sam, who was killed in the 1950-1953 Korean War, at the national cemetery in Seoul, South Korea. Monday is the country's Memorial Day, commemorating those killed while serving in the military. In her Memorial Day address, President Park Geun-hye said Seoul would maintain its sanctions on North Korea to compel it to give up its nuclear weapons program.
