SEOUL, March 28 The remains of what appears to
be at least one unrecovered victim of South Korea's sunken Sewol
ferry were found near the salvaged vessel on Tuesday, an
official said, nearly three years after the disaster that killed
"Six pieces of remains that were found are 4 cm to 18 cm
long," Lee Cheol-jo, an official at the Ministry of Oceans and
Fisheries, told a briefing, adding that the remains appeared to
have emerged through the vessel's windows.
The lengths are equivalent to 1.6 inch to 7 inches.
The ferry was raised last week and has been loaded onto a
semi-submersible vessel to be taken to a nearby port. Lee
declined to say how many victims the remains are suspected to
belong to, but said DNA tests will be conducted.
