Family and schoolmates of missing passengers of the Sewol ferry accident hold candles and a banner reading 'Please come back' during a vigil at Danwon High School in Ansan, South Korea, April 17, 2014. Nearly 300 people were still missing and at least nine confirmed dead after a passenger ferry carrying hundreds of teenagers sank off the southern coast of South Korea on April 16. Nearly two-thirds of the 462 passengers who had been on board are feared to be trapped inside the now-submerged Sewol ferry, the coast guard said.
