BUDAPEST, June 6 (Yonhap) -- The body of a South Korean man has been discovered in a river in the Hungarian capital, a week after the sinking of a sightseeing boat there, authorities said Thursday.

Local police found the body about 4 kilometers south of the accident site at around 11:29 p.m. Wednesday.

The victim has been identified as a South Korean man in his 60s, according to a team of South Korean officials dispatched to Hungary soon after the news of the accident.
