Grieving Relatives Jeer President at Ferry Memorial

Grieving relatives shouted at South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye and dismissed her apology about the ferry disaster on Tuesday after she visited a memorial set up for the students who perished in the sunken vessel. "What Park did at the memorial altar was like coming there to shoot an advertisement, surrounded by bodyguards," Yu Gyeong-geun, the father of one of the young victims, said afterwards. Victims’ relatives have claimed that the government did not do enough to rescue or protect their loved ones.
