Death penalty for captain of S Korea ferry
October 27, 2014
-  South Korean prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the captain of the Sewol ferry, which sank in April killing 300 people.  The prosecutors said Lee Joon-seok failed to execute his duty.

The Sewol ferry incident sparked nationwide mourning, and severe criticism of the government's handling of the rescue operation.  Many of those who died when the ferry sank were teenagers on a school trip.  During the course of the trial Capt Lee repeatedly told the court that he was confused and not in a normal state of mind when the incident occurred.

Ferry captain sentenced to 36 years in jail
11 November 2014
 During the trial, Lee apologised for abandoning them.
The captain of the South Korean ferry which sank in April has been found guilty of gross negligence and sentenced to 36 years in prison.
The Sewol ferry was carrying 476 people when it went down. More than 300 died, most of them school students.

Lee Joon-seok was among 15 crew members on trial over the sinking, one of South Korea's worst maritime disasters.
Prosecutors charged him with homicide and called for the death penalty, but judges acquitted him on that charge.

The disaster was blamed on a combination of illegal redesigns, the overloading of cargo and the inexperience of the crew member steering the vessel.
Crew members did not secure cargo which moved when the vessel took a tight corner, toppling the ferry, and Lee was filmed leaving the sinking ship while many passengers remained inside.

MERS virus spreading across Asia, South Korea fails to contain outbreak
http://rt.com/news/266464-mers-virus-hong-kong/
6/11/15

Hong Kong issued a red alert and advised against traveling to South Korea, where an epidemic of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is gaining pace. The virus is spreading despite attempts to contain the outbreak.

In Korea, the number of infected people passed 100 this week, reaching 122 on Thursday. Tenth patient died from the disease, health officials said on Thursday. Most of the victims are elderly patients with other health problems unrelated to the virus. Over 3,250 people remain in quarantine.

Two people in Hong Kong who traveled to South Korea recently are being tested for possible MERS contagion, the authorities said on Thursday. Previously 31 people were tested negative in Hong Kong.

Earlier a man tested positive for the disease in China after coming from S. Korea, and a man in Taiwan was taken to hospital with symptoms consistent with MERS.

South Korean authorities are trying to stop the spread of the virus by closing schools and canceling public events. Neighbors in the region are scaling down tourist travel to South Korea, with Hong Kong alone scrapping 600 tours to the MERS-hit country.

Macau issued an advisory against traveling to South Korea.

S. Korean President Park Geun-hye postponed her visit to the US, which was scheduled for June 14-18. Park decided not to leave the country in a time of crisis, especially since the S. Korean government currently has no prime minister.

MERS most likely spread to South Korea from Saudi Arabia, where the virus was first identified in 2012. At least 448 deaths are attributed to it, most of them in the Middle East, according to the World Health Organization numbers. The Korean outbreak is the largest so far outside the Middle East.

The virus is of the same coronavirus family that caused a massive epidemic in China in 2003 from severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). So far there is no vaccine for MERS.

Regional concerns about the MERS epidemic come as increased international traffic in a globalized world makes contagious diseases more dangerous. The most-publicized recent outbreak – the Ebola virus in West Africa – was actually caused by a strain of the virus no more virulent than the first recorded epidemic in 1976, according to research published this week by the National Institutes of Health.

But the connectivity of the modern world and authorities’ hesitation to enforce quarantines to avoid economic harm, allowed Ebola to spread, causing at least 11,000 deaths, a record for the disease.

Pyongyang plans to attack S. Korea
Feb 18, 2016
 debka -  South Korea intelligence said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered his army to prepare a large-scale attack on South Korea, targeting government ministries, bodies supporting defection from North Korea, and public areas such as shopping centers, among others.

I'd be surprised - but not shocked.
