South Korean Prime Minister has offered to resign over the government’s handling of # ferry tragedy that left 187 dead. PM Chung Hong-Won said “I wanted to resign earlier but handling the situation was the first priority and I thought that it was a responsible act to help before leaving.”
Chung Hong-Won added, “But I’ve decided to resign now not to be any burden on the administration.”
More than 100 passengers are still missing after the ferry sunk during a trip from Incheon to the island of Jeju on April 16. Many of the passengers were students and teachers. They were told to remain in their cabins until further instructions were given.
