Outrage grows as hundreds remain missing after South Korean ferry disaster

A desperate race is under way off the coast of South Korea to save nearly 300 people, most of them students trapped in what authorities hope are isolated air pockets inside the overturned ferry.

Authorities are working on the assumption that survivors are still in the ship - but bad weather, murky water and darkness have hindered the rescue operation.

On land, the South Korean government is under increasing pressure to determine what caused the crash that has killed at least 25 people.

Questions mount in South Korean ferry disaster; hundreds still missing

Officials say it appears the ship may have veered off course, though they say it does not appear to have hit a rock.

The captain of the ship, meanwhile, is under investigation.

South Korean ferry disaster: Could air pockets save students on ship?

Searchers are in a desperate race to find the nearly 300 passengers who may be trapped inside a capsized ferry off the coast of South Korea.

A police chief tells CNN that authorities are working on the assumption that survivors are still in the ship. Divers are trying to find a way inside the ship that is mostly underwater. Their hope is to find students that are still alive - saved by pockets of air.

Growing desperation, anger as search for South Korean ferry survivors continues

Time is of the essence with temperatures in the water as cold as 50 degrees, and efforts to pump air into the ship have failed so far because of bad weather..

Is there a better way to search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

The Bluefin has certainly had its share of challenges in its search for Flight 370. Its first two dives were cut short due to technical problems. So far, there has been no sign of the missing jet.

MH370: Undersea search could cost a quarter billion dollars, official says

There are questions as to whether the Bluefin-21 can dive deep enough, and whether it can send back pictures that are clear enough.

So is there anything out there that can do the job better?

Rosa Flores has the story.

Deep water search for Flight 370 could lead to manned expedition

Even if investigators are able to locate the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 on the ocean floor, bring it to the surface will be a huge challenge.

MH370: Undersea search could cost a quarter billion dollars, official says

It could involve a manned expedition, three miles below the surface of the ocean.
