A corroding South Korean ferry raised from the bottom of the sea last week arrived Friday at the port where it will be searched for the remains of the last nine victims of the 2014 sinking.Dozens of relatives of the victims watched from nearby as workers from a port in Mokpo conducted operations to dock the heavy lift transport vessel that carried the 6,800-ton Sewol, lying with its rusty blue bottom facing land.Salvage crews on two barges raised the Sewol last week, rolling up nearly 70 cables connected to metal beams divers had installed beneath the ferry, which was lying on its left side below 44 meters (144 feet) of water.
