SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – South Korea’s president is promising to salvage the ferry that sank a year ago, killing 304 people, most of whom were high school students.

But President Park Geun-hye (goon-hay) was snubbed by angry relatives of victims as Park visited a small port near the site of the sinking.

The families refused to meet with the president, but she gave a speech anyway.

Flags have been lowered at half-staff across the country to mark the anniversary of the disaster.
