Hoping against hope

, April 23, 2014

Messages wishing for the safe return of missing passengers from capsized passenger ship Sewol are seen at Danwon high school in Ansan on April 23. The confirmed death toll from a sunken South Korean ferry is rising faster as divers penetrate the dark, cold waters inside, feeling for children's bodies with their hands as they swim through a maze of cabins, corridors and upturned decks. The Sewol sank last Wednesday on a routine trip from the port of Incheon, near Seoul, to the southern island of Jeju. Reuters/Kim Hong-Ji
