A state committee charged with commemorating the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War is offering a brief introduction of each day of the 1950-53 war through Twitter and me2DAY until June 25th.

The addresses are twitter.com/koreanwar60 and me2day.net/koreanwar_60.

"Through this event, we hope that people can recognize the war as a current issue, not simply as a thing of the past," said a committee official.

In the predawn hours of June 25, 1950, North Korea with the support of China and the former Soviet Union invaded South Korea across the 38th parallel. The war ended in a truce in July 1953, leaving the two Koreas technically at war.
