"--IANS/WAM"
New York, April 17 - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has written to South Korean President Park Geun-hye expressing condolences over the sinking of the ferry Sewol in which at least 14 people were believed drowned.

In a letter Wednesday, Ban extended sympathy to the bereaved family members and to the South Korean government and people.

Ban said he is all the more heart-broken as hundreds of students were on board the ferry which was carrying 475 passengers and capsized Wednesday off the country's southern coast.
