One person is dead and more than 50 are unaccounted for after a South Korean ship sank off of Russia’s far northeastern Chukotka Peninsula. The South Korean trawler became stranded in the Bering Sea early Monday morning, according to the government. The 60-person crew included 35 Indonesians, 13 Filipinos, 11 South Koreans, and a Russian inspector. Russian media said seven people have been successfully rescued, but rough weather conditions were hindering further efforts. This latest incident echoes the tragic South Korean ferry accident this year that left hundreds dead, many of whom were teenage students, and resulted in the prime minister’s resignation.
