MOKPO, South Korea — Rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of ferry passengers still missing today and feared dead, as fresh questions emerged about whether quicker action by the captain of the doomed ship could have saved lives.

The confirmed death toll from the sinking off southern South Korea was 28, the coast guard said. But more than 48 hours after the sinking the number of deaths was expected to rise sharply with about 270 people missing, many of them high school students on a class trip. Officials said there were 179 survivors.
