HONOLULU (AP) _ Remains believed to be those of 11 U.S. servicemen missing in action from the Korean and Vietnam wars arrived at Hickam Air Force Base on Friday.

The remains were taken to an Army laboratory for identification, according to the U.S. military's Joint Task Force-Full Accounting, which conducts search missions for the remains of missing servicemen.

Two of the sets of remains come from Laos, six from Vietnam and three from North Korea. They were turned over to U.S. officials by governments of those countries over the past nine days.

Since 1973, the remains of 540 American service members from the war in Indochina have been identified. There are still 1,523 Americans unaccounted for in Vietnam, 438 in Laos, 74 in Cambodia and eight in China.

Joint efforts between the U.S. and North Korean governments to recover more than 8,100 missing Americans from the Korean War began in 1996.

So far, the remains of three servicemen have been identified.
