(07-29 12:41)

The ashes of three Chinese teenagers who died in the South Korean-owned Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 crash in San Francisco were sent to their hometown in east China's Zhejiang Province today.
Ten relatives of the victims boarded a flight operated by China Eastern Airlines in San Francisco early yesterday and arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport at 5 pm before traveling to the city of Jiangshan, the victims' home, Xinhua reports.
The victims' relatives went to the Jiangshan Municipal Funeral Parlor today, where other relatives, local officials and representatives from the middle school they attended awaited their arrival.
Memorial services and funerals for the three girls are scheduled for a later date, one of the relatives said.
The girls were aboard Asiana Airlines Flight 214 when it crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6. The crash killed one of the girls instantly, while another girl was run over by an ambulance. The third girl died six days later in a local hospital after sustaining critical injuries.
