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.

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

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

Kyung Lah is OutFront in Jindo, South Korea with the latest in the investigation.
