Captain of sunken SKorean ferry, 2 crew arrested

Lee Joon-seok, center, the captain of the sunken ferry Sewol, arrives at a court that was asked to issue his arrest warrant in Mokpo, south of Seoul, South Korea, on Friday, April 18. The investigation into South Korea's ferry disaster focused on the sharp turn it took just before it began listing and on the possibility that a quicker evacuation order by the captain could have saved lives, officials said.
