South Korean President criticises ferry captain

South Korea's President has strongly criticised the captain of the ferry that sank and some of his crew - saying their actions in abandoning ship were tantamount to murder.

Park Geun-hye's comments came as four more crew members were arrested following Sunday's release of the last audio conversations with the coastguard before the ferry listed and sank.

Divers have now removed 64 bodies from the vessel but 238 people are still missing.

Lucy Williamson reports.
