Itaewon Crowd Crush: Thousands Join Vigil As Anger Grows In South Korea

Thousands of mourners have gathered in South Korea’s capital for a candlelit vigil to honour the victims of the Halloween stampede and condemn the government’s response.

People gathered in downtown Seoul on Saturday holding candles and signs that read ‘resignation of President Yoon Suk Yeol’.

The event marked the end of a week of national mourning. A civic group has been holding weekly rallies against Yoon Suk Yeol’s administration.
