Day 40: Bad weather hampers search for missing bodies, police make arrest

Off of Korea's southwestern island of Jindo efforts to find the bodies of those still missing from the sunken Sewol-ho ferry have been halted for now and could be stalled until Monday.

Bad weather conditions, including fast tidal currents and foggy conditions, have prevented divers from searching for the last 16 bodies still under water.

No bodies have been recovered since Wednesday.

The death toll stands at 288.

Divers have been focusing their search efforts on the third and fourth decks of the ship, but are struggling because parts of the ship are now falling apart.
