FILE - In this April 24, 2014 file photo, searchers and divers look for people believed to have been trapped in the sunken ferry Sewol near buoys which were installed to mark the vessel in the water off the southern coast near Jindo, South Korea. Salvaging the corroded, the 6,800-ton ferry Sewol from deep beneath a channel notorious for dangerous currents will be difficult, expensive and potentially risky. It will also be one more major headache for a government already reeling from accusations that its incompetence and corruption were partly responsible for the 304 people killed when the ship sank a year ago. There are also safety worries. Two divers died during last year’s search efforts in the Maenggol Channel. Maenggol means “fierce bones,” and the waterway is notorious for strong, fast currents that slice through narrow passages between small islands. (Yonhap via AP, File) KOREA OUT less
