Officials searching for missing victims of a ferry disaster off the coast of South Korea have found the remains of at least one person.
The Sewol ferry capsized and sank in 2014, killing 303 people.
But the wreckage has only now been salvaged and brought to shore.
The nine missing victims of the disaster were remembered in a service held on a nearby boat, overlooking the wreckage.

Lee Keum Hee, mother of missing student Cho En Hwa, said she hopes her daughter will now be found.
“All we want is to find our family members and go back home,” she said.
“When I threw flowers a little while ago, I said to my daughter, ‘Let’s go home now.
“I’ll find you soon. Please make a little more effort to come back to us.”
