Divers retrieved a number of bodies over the weekend and the death toll in the tragic incident has now reached 64. Anger flared in South Korea on Monday over fresh indications that the evacuation of a capsized ferry was delayed by panic and indecision, as hundreds are still missing.

 

“Precious minutes just wasted,” ran the front page headline in the Dong-A Ilbo newspaper, in response to a communications transcript released Sunday revealing the confusion as the crew and marine traffic control debated evacuating the sinking vessel.
