Divers discover horror of conditions onboard sunken South Korean ferry

The bodies of 48 young girls wearing lifejackets have been discovered in a single cabin of the doomed South Korean ferry, as government officials were forced to admit they sent the wrong bodies home to several grieving families.

As frustrated relatives of those missing on the Sewol ferry vented their anger at the pace of the search efforts, rescuers said the bodies of the 48 girls had been discovered in a cabin with a capacity of 30.

In a further blow to shattered families, the South Korean government has also been forced to admit that it in some cases bodies of the victims were 'wrongly transferred.'

Bodies will now be identified through DNA and finger-print testing to ensure the correct victims are sent home for burial.

The bungle heightened public outrage even further, as families wait to confirm the loss of up to 300 mainly young lives in the disaster.

If only one person with some sense had convinced the rest not to do as they were told hardly any would have died.I am convinced that if this incident had occurred in US waters,and with US high school students aboard they would all have lived,because kids over here don't take instructions well.

Mr. Idiot Sir, S. Korea does NOT have nukes. WE are their nukes. S. Korea IS mulling the decision to acquire them, but as far as I can tell they do not have them yet.

You and others are so quick to call people idiots, and other derogatory names, without attempting to do due diligence to see if what you are saying is near the truth.

WHO is the real idiot?

The United States developed the first atomic weapons during World War II in co-operation with the United Kingdom and Canada as part of the Manhattan Project, out of the fear that Nazi Germany would develop them first. It tested the first nuclear weapon in 1945 ("Trinity"), and remains the only country to have used nuclear weapons against an enemy state in warfare, devastating the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Abnormally high levels of radiation at Tungusta led some to believe that a nuclear explosion had taken place.It's still considered a meteor,and it was in 1908,many years before nukes were created.I wonder if any natural confluence of factors could have created a nuclear explosion.More than likely not.
