The U.S. Navy on Thursday turned over the recovered belongings of the students and crew of the Japanese fisheries training ship Ehime Maru, including those of the nine who went down with the ship after a U.S. submarine hit it off Hawaii in February.

Survivors of the collision, their families and bereaved families of the nine received some 120 boxes full of belongings at a ceremony held at Uwajima Fisheries High School, which owned the ship, in Uwajima, Ehime Prefecture, school officials said.
