South Korea ferry trial: Prosecutors call for death penalty

South Korean prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the captain of the Sewol ferry, which sank in April killing more than 300 people.
The prosecutors said Lee Joon-seok, who is charged with homicide, failed to execute his duty. When questioned, he did concede that he should have done more to get passengers to safety. He also admitted that he knew the crew member steering the ship at the time of the accident was relatively new to the job and did not have the skills and experience required.
