South Korean ferry disaster school reopens

24 April 2014 Last updated at 11:40 BST

Danwon high school in South Korea has reopened following the Sewol ferry disaster which claimed the lives of almost 250 of its students and teachers.

The ferry sank last week as it sailed from Incheon to Jeju Island.

Most of the students who survived the disaster remain in hospital and it is not clear when they will return to school.

Dozens of counsellors have been brought in to help with the trauma that many of the students are expected to face.
