St. Joseph’s Church in Phnom Penh invites everyone to a Taize prayer gathering for victims of the ill-fated Sewol Ferry in Korea and Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 that continues to be missing since it took off from Kaula Lumpur on March 8.

Facing anger from families of Flight 370 passengers, Malaysia’s Prime Minister said Thursday his government will release its preliminary report on the plane’s disappearance.

In a TV exclusive, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak told CNN on Thursday his government will make public its report on the mysterious disappearance of flight MH370 carrying 239 people.

East of Malaysia in South Korea waters, divers continue to search for more than 300 passengers after Sewol Ferry headed for Jeju island with more than 300 children and teenage students. The death toll has reached 150.

Bishop Peter Kang U-il of Cheju (Jeju) island in an e-mail to Catholic in Asia on Easter Sunday described the atmosphere in his country as one of national grief and mourning, “an atmosphere of funeral.”

U.S. President Barack Obama during his state visit to South Korea Friday, April 25, led a moment of silence and presented the Koreans with a magnolia tree and the memorial flag that was raised in the White House on the day of the tragedy to honor the victims of the disaster and express condolences and solidarity with grieving allies.
