North Korea in July handed over what are thought to be the remains of 55 USA servicemen who were killed during the Korean War.

Mattis told Pentagon reporters that experts moved swiftly on analyzing those two sets of remains, as they thought they had a good chance of identifying them because of where they were located and other information.

"One of the reasons that we were able to identify them so quickly [was because their remains] were more complete than usual so it gave us more to look at and narrow down the identity with", Dr. John Byrd, Laboratory Director of the Defense POW/MIA Accountability Agency said.
