In the morning on Oct. 16th, 100 members of civic bodies, which representing the families of the people abducted by North Korea, are waging a demonstration onboard a ship off the coast of Inchon, demanding that the issue of the abductees be adopted as part of the agenda at the meeting of the senior-level talks between North and South. Out of the 486 kidnapped, 20 people are confirmed dead, and the members, as a tribute to the dead, are throwing chrysanthemums.
