Weather clears up: Body found in South Korean ferry

Divers have found another body trapped in a sunken South Korean ferry as the search for more than two dozen missing passengers resumed after strong winds and waves halted the effort for three days.

Searchers have found 276 bodies, and 28 passengers remain missing.

Most of the victims were students from a single high school south of Seoul.

Improved weather allowed the search to resume early on Tuesday, government task force spokesman Ko Myung-seok said.

Nearly a month after the ferry sank, the search teams have been hampered by bad weather, floating debris inside the ship and, lately, the vessel's deterioration.

According to Ko, it has been difficult to enter some of the rooms because waterlogged walls have partially collapsed and blocked passages.
