Commemoration events are being held in South Korea on the fifth anniversary of the Sewol ferry sinking. The 2014 tragedy was one of the country’s worst maritime disasters, killing more than 300 people, most of them high school students. The accident brought about major changes in South Korea, from stricter safety standards to political change, including the eventual impeachment of former president Park Geun-hye.
