Extra News satellite channel broadcasted footage of recovering the dead bodies from the sunken tourist boat on the Danube River in Budapest in Hungary. This accident killed at least 7 people. Hungarian police said late on Thursday they had taken into custody the captain of a 440-foot (135-metre) cruise ship، which hit and sank a smaller pleasure boat where a Korean tourist group was sightseeing. It was so far unclear what caused the accident، Reuters reported.
Rescue teams have taken up positions on the surface above the sunken tourist boat and divers have attempted to approach the wreckage، but the flooding river meant conditions were poor and the work could take a long time، the government said. South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha arrived in Budapest on Friday to get first-hand information on the rescue efforts and help the process. She thanked her Hungarian counterpart for the intense search and rescue operations.
