Text size Aa Aa

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – South Korean and Hungarian divers have recovered a body from the wreck of a tourist boat which sank last week in Budapest, national news agency MTI said on Monday, citing the Hungarian counter-terrorism unit running the rescue.

Twenty-eight people are presumed dead in the accident – the worst river disaster in Hungary in more than half a century – when a pleasure boat carrying South Korean tourists capsized after crashing into a larger cruise ship.
