Angry relatives of passengers who drowned in a ferry sinking snubbed South Korea's president on the disaster's anniversary Thursday, even as she pledged to salvage the ship.
Tears and grief mixed with raw fury as black-clad relatives and their supporters mourned the 304 victims of the ferry Sewol, most of whom were high school students. Earlier in the day, relatives blocked the prime minister from attending a mourning event. They later canceled another ceremony because of what they called government indifference to their plight.
