Items which appear to be the belongings of passengers have been found inside the salvaged Sewol ferry.
The on-site Sewol headquarters set up at the Mokpo New Port in South Jeolla Province said on Thursday that its eight-member search team found a mobile phone as well as a digital camera on the fourth floor of the ship.
So far, a total of four mobile phones have been discovered since the government launched efforts to salvage the ship. It is the first time a digital camera was discovered.
The headquarters plan to commission private experts to restore the retrieved electronic devices, which they hope will help reconstruct the tragedy that befell the vessel.
