Students from Danwon High School and others attend a candlelight vigil to wish for the safe return of missing passengers from the South Korean ferry Sewol, which sank in the sea off Jindo, at a park in Ansan, South Korea, on Saturday.

The Sewol, carrying 476 passengers and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some relatives of the more than 200 children still missing on the sunken ferry offered DNA swabs to help identify the dead. Thirty-two people are known to have died.
