  1. Hundreds Still Missing After South Korean Boat Capsizes

    Nearly 300 people, most of them teenagers, are missing after a ferry sank off the coast of South Korea. Anxious families await news in Seoul as rescuers search for survivors in the frigid waters. So far nine are confirmed dead. There is hope that some may have managed to survive in air pockets in parts of the ferry, but the death toll is expected to rise. Heartbreaking text messages were reportedly sent by those trapped in the boat, with one reading: “We are not dead yet.”
