Relatives of passengers aboard the sunken ferry Sewol sit near the sea at a port in Jindo, south of Seoul, South Korea, Sunday, April 20, 2014. After more than three days of frustration and failure, divers on Sunday finally found a way into the submerged ferry off South Korea's southern shore, discovering more than a dozen bodies inside the ship and pushing the confirmed death toll to over four dozens, officials said. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)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.

A monk leads a prayer session for relatives of those on board the sunken ferry at Jindo harbour on April 21, 2014Jindo (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.
