A relative of a victim onboard sunken ferry Sewol, holding a victim's portrait, cries during a rally to call for an independent inquiry into the matter and to urge the government to salvage the sunken ferry Sewol as soon as possible, in central Seoul April 5, 2015. South Korea said it would pay about $380,000 (257,305 pounds) in compensation for each of the 250 students who died in last year's ferry disaster, although some victims' families accused the government of trying to divert attention from their demands for an independent probe. More than 300 people, most of them students and teachers from the Danwon High School, are dead or missing and presumed dead after the April 16 disaster last year. The Sewol ferry, weighing almost 7,000 tons, sank on a routine trip from the port of Incheon, near Seoul, to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Nine are still listed as missing. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji

Italian and Greek helicopter crews prepared to work through the night to airlift passengers in pairs off a burning ferry adrift in the Adriatic Sea, battling darkness and bad weather that hampered rescue efforts by other ships throughout Sunday.

Locals watch from the beach as waves hit an Indonesian tanker that ran aground near Narathiwat in southern Thailand December 19, 2014. The tanker loaded with palm oil, previously hijacked by its crew members and then seized by Thai authorities, was anchored some 400 meters from the beach but strong wind and waves broke it free, according to local media.

A woman crouches in front of yellow ribbons, with messages dedicated to victims onboard the sunken ferry Sewol, at a port in Jindo November 18, 2014. Many loved ones of surviving crew members of the Sewol ferry disaster are being treated as a pariah amid outrage in South Korea over the deaths of 304 people on the doomed boat, which sank while making a turn on a routine voyage to the holiday island of Jeju. The surviving crew have been vilified since video footage showed they were among the first to be rescued as teenagers on a school trip waited in their cabins as instructed, drowning when the overloaded vessel sank before help arrived. In South Korea, a person's shame or honour is profoundly affected by family association. To match story SOUTHKOREA-FERRY/ Picture taken November 18, 2014.
