South Korea is marking the first anniversary of the Sewol ferry disaster that claimed more than 300 lives a year ago, when it sank off Jindo Island. Family members of the victims, which included more than 250 school students, sailed to the site Wednesday to remember with flowers and offerings. The tragedy prompted outrage over the overcrowded and illegally design ship, calling for reform on safety standards and rescue efforts. The nation is planning ceremonies across the country, including two memorial services in Ansan city, where the students lived. About 300 private organizations and local governments planned to mark the day, according to Home Affairs Minister Jeong Jong-seop.
