All navigation crew of sunken ferry held
April 26, 2014  
Divers have recovered 183 bodies, but scores are missing presumed drowned.
Friday divers found 48 bodies of students wearing lifejackets in a single room on the vessel meant to accommodate just over 30 people.
The group was crammed into a dormitory and all were wearing lifejackets.

All 15 crew members involved in the navigation of the ferry Sewol are in custody, facing criminal negligence charges.
The prosecution requested arrest warrants for four additional crew members. Eleven others, including the captain, had been detained earlier.
The ferry with 476 people on board sank off South Korea on 16 April.

South Korea ferry toll reaches 244 as Park meets relatives
May 4, 2014
 The confirmed death toll from the South Korea ferry disaster has reached 244, officials say, as President Park Geun-hye met relatives of those on board.
Ms Park told family members that those responsible for the ferry sinking on 16 April would be "punished severely".

The Sewol ferry had 476 passengers on board when it sank - 174 were rescued, and 58 remain unaccounted for.
Prosecutors say the ferry owner ignored safety warnings and allowed the ship to be overloaded.

Ms Park visited Jindo island, close to where the ship sank, on Sunday. It was her second meeting with the family members.

Diver searching S. Korean ferry wreckage perishes, death toll reaches 260
South Korean government officials have announced that a diver searching for dozens of people who disappeared in the tragic ferry disaster has died after losing consciousness underwater. The unnamed diver, 53, was combing the water off the southern coast of South Korea where the Sewol ferry sank, with his fellow divers pulling him to the surface after he stopped responding to their communications. The April 16 sinking left at least 260 people dead, the latest figures show, as government and civilian divers continue sifting through the area to locate the bodies of the 40 people still missing.

South Korea ferry captain charged with manslaughter
May 14, 2014
The results of an interim investigation has found that a sharp turn was the main cause of the sinking.
The Sewol made a sharp turn at a 15 degree angle before tilting and capsizing.

The overloading of cargo and the lack of water in ballast tanks to balance the load made recovery from its sharp turn difficult, officials added.
The captain of the sunken South Korean ferry has been charged with manslaughter, reports say.

Lee Joon-seok, 68, is accused of leaving the ship as it was sinking while telling passengers to stay put, reports Yonhap news agency.
He was among the first to be rescued by coast guards at the scene.
The Sewol ferry disaster on 16 April killed 281 passengers, most of whom were high school students. Another 23 are still missing.

Besides Mr Lee, three crew members - the chief engineer, the chief mate and the second mate - are also being charged with manslaughter. If convicted, they could face life imprisonment.
"The [four people charged] escaped before the passengers, leading to grave casualties," prosecutor Ahn Sang-don told journalists.
Prosecutors have indicted another 11 crew members for negligence.
Only 172 passengers survived the sinking of the ferry, including 22 of the 29 crew members.

Korean Air suspends Kenya flights
August 15, 2014

Ebola has not been detected in Kenya yet during this most recent outbreak.

Liberia acquired doses of ZMapp, enough of the drug to treat 3 people.

Massaquoi also said he was holding talks with the Canadian maker of another experimental Ebola drug.  Canadia to donate up to 1,000 doses of its untested Ebola vaccine to the WHO. But manufacturer Tekmira Pharmaceuticals on Wednesday said further trials were required before it could make the treatment available.

Nigeria announced 11 confirmed Ebola cases, included 3 deaths and 8 being treated in Lagos.

Warships of rival Koreas exchange warning shots
October 7, 2014  
SEOUL, South Korea — Warships from the rival Koreas exchanged warning shots Tuesday after a North Korean ship briefly violated the disputed western sea boundary, a South Korean defense official said.
The shots were fired into the sea and there were no reports of injuries and damage to the ships of either side, the official said on condition of anonymity, citing office policy.

Such exchanges are not uncommon at the sea boundary, the scene of several deadly maritime skirmishes between the Koreas in recent years. But the latest incident happened three days after a group of high-profile North Korean officials made a surprise visit to South Korea and agreed to resume senior-level talks.

South Korean President Park Geun-hye on Monday stressed the need to hold high-level talks on a regular basis, saying she hopes North Korea would show how sincere it is about improving ties.

The South Korean official said the North Korean ship was in South Korea-controlled waters for about 10 minutes before it retreated to its waters. He said a South Korea navy ship first broadcast a warning and then fired warning shots before the North Korean ship fired back at waters near the South Korean ship. The South Korean ship returned fire into the sea near the North Korean ship, the official said.

North Korean navy ships and fishing boats frequently violate the boundary drawn by the American-led U.N. command at the end of the Korean War in the early 1950s without the North's consent. The line cuts North Korea off from rich fishing waters.
The Korean Peninsula remains at a technical state of war because the Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.
