South Korean President Park Geun-hye has apologised over the ferry disaster, in a statement to cabinet shown on national television. Ms Park said that the government had failed to prevent the disaster and bungled its emergency response. Her apology comes amid ongoing work to retrieve bodies from the sunken hull. The Sewol ferry sank off South Korea on 16 April, with 476 people aboard.
