SINGAPORE: Singapore's Foreign Affairs Ministry, in response to media query, said it has not received reports that there were Singaporeans on board the South Korean ferry which sank on Wednesday.
Almost 300 people were missing after the ferry sank 20 kilometres off South Korea's southern island of Byungpoong.
The ferry was carrying 459 people, of whom 164 were rescued, coastguard officials said.
At least three people were confirmed dead after the ferry listed heavily onto its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions.
The ferry had been bound for the popular southern resort island of Jeju. - CNA/ir
