    Some 160 coast guard and navy divers searched for survivors inside the wreckage of a ferry that sank off of South Korea this morning. Cho Man-yong, a coast guard spokesman, said 16 divers approached the ferry Wednesday night but failed to get inside because the current was too strong. He said the water was very muddy and visibility was poor, but navy and coast guard divers planned to make another approach after midnight to try to find the 284 missing people. "We cannot give up," said South Korean President Park Geun-hye, after a briefing in Seoul with officials. "We have to do our best to rescue even one passenger." - AP
