Another body has been retrieved from the sunken ferry Sewol in South Korea, bringing the official death toll to 292.

Divers found the man on the front part of the ship’s fourth deck. He is yet to be identified, reports Yonhap news agency. The hull has now been cut open near the fourth deck, and the search continues.

Sewol capsized and sank off the southwest island of Jindo on April 16, leaving 304 people dead or missing, most of them teenage students from a high school near Seoul.
