ANSAN/INCHEON, South Korea, April 22 (Yonhap) -- Families and friends bade tearful farewell to their loved ones Tuesday as a series of funerals were held for some high school students and a crew member who were killed in the recent sinking of a ferry off South Korea's south coast.

Of the 476 passengers aboard the ferry Sewol, 325 were students of Danwon High School in Ansan, just south of Seoul, who were on a school trip to a southern resort island when their ship capsized and sank off the southwestern island of Jindo on Wednesday morning.
