Some 33 South Korean nationals and two Hungarian crew members were aboard the 'Mermaid' cruise when the ship collided with another vessel just outside the Parliament building in the Hungarian capital on Wednesday evening, the country's foreign ministry said.
Seven Koreans drowned in the incident, while 19 others are still missing, the ministry claimed. Local authorities also confirmed the number of casualties.
