Bone of victim from S Korea disaster found

BBC

London: A piece of bone found on the site of the Sewol ferry disaster off South Korea has been confirmed as belonging to one of the missing victims, reports BBC. 
The Sewol sank off Jindo island on 16 April 2014, killing 304 people, almost all of them children. The bodies of nine people have never been recovered and relatives have long campaigned for them to be found. The ship was raised in March after almost three years on the sea floor and towed to port. Workers are searching the silt and debris inside the wreck to search for human remains, while divers are looking on the seabed where the ferry had been lying. 
Most of those on board were teenagers from the same high school. Many obeyed erroneous crew instructions to remain in their cabins as the ship sank.
