Search and rescue efforts continue after a fishing boat caught fire and capsized Tuesday morning in waters near Korea's southern island of Jeju.
The Coast Guard reported that so far one person was found dead, while eleven crewmembers are still unaccounted for.
It's believed six Koreans and six Vietnamese were aboard the boat.
Waters around the island are high with waves reaching up to three meters, hampering search and rescue operations.
President Moon Jae-in has ordered relevant ministries to use all possible means and find those missing, and ordered those in charge to keep families of the victims informed of the situation.
