Urbana Warfel, 81, places a rose on the casket of her brother, Korean War solider U.S. Army Sgt. Wilson Meckley, Jr., during his burial ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. Meckley, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was declared missing, then dead, after his unit was overwhelmed by Chinese forces in the late autumn of 1950 but his body was never found. Through DNA testing it was determined that Meckley's remains were among those of at least 600 U.S. servicemen who fought in the Korean War and were returned to the United States by North Korea between 1990 and 1994.

A mother holds her child as migrants arrive on a Greek coast guard boat at the port of Mytilene, on Lesbos island, after being collected from the sea by the Greek coast guards. Greece sent a first wave of migrants back to Turkey on April 4 under an EU deal that has faced heavy criticism from rights groups. Under the agreement, designed to halt the main influx which comes from Turkey, all "irregular migrants" arriving since March 20 face being sent back, although the deal calls for each case to be examined individually. For every Syrian refugee returned, another Syrian refugee will be resettled from Turkey to the EU, with numbers capped at 72,000.
