Tamas Menczer, the state secretary for communications and international representation said in a Facebook post on Saturday that multiple letter sent to Seoul's embassy in Budapest by South Korean citizens praised the work of the Hungarian rescue teams. Many Koreans were moved by the candles and memories objects left on the bank of the Danube too.

The small sightseeing boat Hableany collied with the much larger Viking Sigyn and sank on May 29. It had 33 South Korean tourists on board and two Hungarian crew members. Seven tourists were rescued, so far the bodies of 19 people have been found and identified. On Saturday, the body of a woman has been recovered from the Danube close to the town of Erd, Hungarian news agency reported. She is presumably another victim of the boat crash.

Hungary's counter terrorism force, TEK announced on Saturday that the lifting of Hableany's wreck is expected to begin next week.
