South Korea ferry: 108 bod­ies re­trieved

Daily Trust - - MIDDLE EAST & ASIA -

Only two of the ves­sel’s 46 lifeboats were re­ported to have been de­ployed.

South Korean Pres­i­dent Park Ge­un­hye on Mon­day con­demned the con­duct of some of the crew, call­ing it “akin to mur­der”.

The BBC’s Jonathan Head in nearby Jindo is­land says that the res­cue oper­a­tion has now be­come some­thing of a grim rou­tine, with po­lice boats reg­u­larly re­turn­ing from the scene of the dis­as­ter with bod­ies re­cov­ered by mil­i­tary divers.

Our cor­re­spon­dent says that most of the fam­i­lies of those still miss­ing have ac­cepted that no more sur­vivors will be found.

Teams of divers have been search­ing the sunken ferry for the bod­ies of those who died.
