Korea ferry businessman's body found next to book, alcohol bottles

SUNCHEON South Korea (Reuters) - The body of South Korea's most wanted man, linked to the sinking of a ferry in April that killed 300 people, was identified more than a month after being found in an orchard, police said on Tuesday, with his book and empty bottles of alcohol nearby. The police chief in charge of the case in a small city in the south of the country was sacked on Tuesday for not recognising the book, or putting two and two together, and for not identifying the corpse earlier. #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #South Korea #markets #Italy #Latin America #Mexico
