MOKPO, SOUTH KOREA (AFP) - The salvaged wreck of South Korea's Sewol ferry finally reached port on Friday (March 31), nearly three years after setting out on a doomed voyage that killed more than 300 people. A semi-submersible ship carrying the wreck docked alongside a pier at the south-western harbour of Mokpo, an AFP photographer on the scene said. The vessel was raised from the sea floor in one piece in a complex salvage operation before being transferred to the semi-submersible for the 105-kilometre journey to the port, where investigators will search it. Almost all of the dead were schoolchildren and nine of the victims have never been found, leaving the possibility that they could still be trapped inside. The lifting ship was escorted by a smaller boat carrying relatives of the nine missing, as well as five patrol craft. 42078442_-_29_03_2017_-_skorea-politics-ferry-...
