South Korea ferry crew go on trial

South Korean crew members have gone on trial over the deaths of at least 292 people following a ferry disaster in April.

Captain Lee Joon-seok, 69, and three other crew members are being accused of "homicide through wilful negligence".

The BBC's Lucy Williamson said many in South Korea feel that the crew have already been tried and convicted by "public opinion".
