Family members of missing passengers who were on the South Korean passenger ferry Sewol which sank in the sea off Jindo, look towards the sea at a port in JindoBy Ju-min Park JINDO, South Korea (Reuters) - South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Monday the actions of the captain and crew of a ferry that sank last week with hundreds feared dead were tantamount to murder, as authorities arrested four more officers of the vessel. Captain Lee Joon-seok, 69, and two other crew members were arrested last week on negligence charges, with prosecutors announcing four further arrests - two first mates, one second mate and a chief engineer - on Monday. Lee, the captain, said in a promotional video four years ago that the journey from the port city of Incheon to the holiday island of Jeju was safe - as long as passengers followed the instructions of the crew. He also told a newspaper that he had been involved in a sea accident off Japan years before.

By Vladimir Soldatkin MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused Ukraine on Monday of violating an accord reached in Geneva last week aimed at averting a wider conflict between the two neighbors. "Steps are being taken - above all by those who seized power in Kiev - not only that do not fulfill, but that crudely violate the Geneva agreement," he said. Lavrov also told a news conference that a deadly gunfight early on Sunday near the Ukrainian city of Slaviansk, which is controlled by pro-Russian separatists, was a crime and showed Kiev did not want to control "extremists". "The authorities are doing nothing, not even lifting a finger, to address the causes behind this deep internal crisis in Ukraine," he said.

In this Feb. 11, 2014 photo, a visitor stands near sculptures at Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall in Nanjing, in eastern China's Jiangsu province. The Tokyo shrine and the memorial hall in Nanjing, as Nanking is now called, are physical embodiments of divergent views of history that still strain China-Japan relations, 70 years after the war. They complicate America's objective of maintaining peace and stability in the Pacific, as President Barack Obama starts a 4-country Asian tour in Japan this week. The implications are potentially serious, particularly over contested uninhabited islands called the Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan)NANJING, China (AP) — Strolling through China's sprawling memorial to a 1937 massacre by Japanese troops, a 64-year-old retired teacher said the incident remains an open wound.
