A South Korean passenger ship that has been sinking is seen at the sea off JindoBy Narae Kim JINDO, South Korea (Reuters) - Almost 300 people were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, despite frantic rescue efforts involving coastguard vessels, fishing boats and helicopters, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of what appeared to be an impact prior to the accident.

FILE - In this Saturday, June 29, 2013 file photo, British musician Paul Weller performs at the Hard Rock Calling Festival in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. Paul Weller has won a privacy lawsuit against a newspaper that published paparazzi pictures of the singer's children. The former front man of The Jam and The Style Council sued Associated Newspapers over images of his daughter Dylan and twin sons John Paul and Bowie that appeared on its MailOnline website. Dylan was 16 and the twins 10 months old when the pictures, taken during a shopping trip in Santa Monica, were published in 2012. Judge James Dingemans ruled Wednesday that although publishing the pictures was legal in California, they "were published in circumstances where Dylan, Bowie and John Paul had a reasonable expectation of privacy." He awarded a total of 10,000 pounds ($17,000) to the children. MailOnline said it was "deeply disappointed" by the ruling and intended to appeal. (Photo by Jonathan Short/Invision/AP, file)LONDON (AP) — The children of musician Paul Weller won a privacy lawsuit Wednesday over paparazzi pictures published on a newspaper website.

A man walks past a row of General Motors vehicles at a Chevrolet dealership on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan(Reuters) - General Motors Co said it will ask a U.S. bankruptcy court to bar plaintiffs from proceeding with lawsuits against the automaker for claims related to any actions before it filed for bankruptcy in 2009. The defect has been linked to the deaths of at least 13 people and resulted in the recall of 2.6 million GM vehicles. In a filing with U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, GM asked for a stay on litigation related to ignition claims until the court decides on a motion to consolidate the claims and the bankruptcy court rules on whether the claims violate GM's 2009 bankruptcy sale order. The California case was in Re: Galdina Maciel et al. vs. General Motors LLC in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, No. 4:14-cv-01339-JSW.
