Mission accomplished

Crew members from the salvage team on the command ship, “Dali”, one of the Chinese vessels that helped to raise the wreck of the sunken South Korean ferry Sewol, return home to Shanghai yesterday. Shanghai Salvage Company won the bid to carry out the salvage operation in July 2015, 15 months after the Korean ferry sank, causing the deaths of 304 passengers. After 590 days of salvage operation, the wreck was lifted on March 22. The company still has several vessels on site to prepare Sewol for being brought ashore. — He Tingtong
