Relatives of victims of the Sewol ferry disaster have their heads shaved Thursday in Gwanghwamun Square, central Seoul, to show their resentment at the government’s plan for compensation for the victims and an ordinance appointing government officials to the special team investigating the ferry capsizing. The relatives are complaining that the government must make a decision on salvaging the ship before discussing compensation and that it is trying to meddle in the investigation. The first anniversary of the tragedy falls in two weeks. [NEWSIS]
