South Korean Prime Minister Resigns Over Ferry

NTDTV Published on Apr 27, 2014

South Korean Prime Minister Chung Hong-won resigns over the government response to a ferry disaster on April 16.

Full Story:

Two giant floats mark the location of the stricken Sewol ferry, which capsized off the southwestern coast of South Korea.

It was full of school students when it sank on 16 April.

More than 300 people have died or are missing and presumed dead.

Divers are still trying to recover their bodies.

A sombre Prime Minister Chung Hong-won offered his resignation amid criticism of the government's handling of the disaster.

"The right thing for me to do is to take responsibility and resign as a person who in charge of the cabinet. I thought it is the way of apology."

"On behalf of the government, I apologise for many problems from the prevention of the accident to the early handling of the disaster."

Here grieving parents storm rescue headquarters. They blame the government for the slow pace of the recovery and the frequent changes in information provided by the government.

In first few hours after the disaster a provincial office announced that everyone had been rescued.

2. My thoughts exactly


However I see it going beyond George Bush. The case with Clapper and the NSA comes to mind immediately. But there's more than enough incompetence to go around in both parties' administrations.
