Candle-lit vigil for South Korea's crush victims

STORY: Held near the Seoul city hall, candles and black ribbons were distributed to participants by the organizers, a civic group which has been holding weekly rallies against President Yoon Suk-yeol’s administration.

Many of the participants held a placard reading "President Yoon, step down" or "We mourn the Itaewon victims."

The vigil came at the end of a week of national mourning declared by Yoon, which saw numerous altars for the public to offer tributes appear across the country.

A huge crowd celebrating Halloween in the popular Itaewon district had surged into an alley on October 29, before a crowd crush erupted in one particularly narrow and sloping alley.
