Pizzas and soft drinks are placed alongside other food offerings on an altar dedicated to the passengers of the capsized Sewol ferry, at a port where many family members are waiting for news of their loved ones.

More than 300 people, most of them students and teachers from the Danwon High School, are dead or missing after the April 16 disaster. The Sewol ferry sank on a routine trip from the port of Incheon, near Seoul, to the southern holiday island of Jeju.
