JINDO, South Korea (AP) — There are no names listed as relatives huddle around white signboards to identify bodies from a sunken ferry — just the slimmest of clues about mostly young lives now lost. Many favored hoodies and track pants. One girl painted her fingernails red and toenails black. Another had braces on her teeth.
Jindo (South Korea) (AFP) - The actions of the captain and crew of a capsized South Korean ferry were "tantamount to murder," President Park Guen-Hye said Monday, condemning their "unimaginable" decision to escape while hundreds were still trapped in the sinking vessel. The weeping of devastated family members could be heard across the harbour on Jindo island as boats brought the most recently recovered bodies in from the nearby rescue site Monday morning.
