7 Dead in S. Korea Ferry Sinking


korea-sinkingAt least seven are dead and 289 are still missing after a South Korea ferry sunk this morning. An announcement to stay put was broadcast over the speakers, telling passengers, including 300 high school students, that “If you move it’s dangerous.”

Reports indicate that 476 people were aboard the ferry. Read more at CNN.
