N.Korea Sends Condolences for Victims of Ferry Disaster

North Korea has sent a message of condolence to the victims of the ferry Sewol which sank off the southwest coast last week.

The Unification Ministry said the message was sent by the North Korean Red Cross.

Pyongyang expressed deep sorrow for the passengers who lost their lives or are still missing. The last time the North sent such a message was back in 2003, when an arson attack on a subway train in Daegu killed nearly 200 people.
