Korea Upside Down

One month after Malaysia's MH370, the Sewol tragedy exposes Korea's own failures in crisis management.
24 hours after the incident, most of the 475 people on board (mainly students) remain trapped in a ferry that had plenty of time to be evacuated before it sank.

"For 140 mn, a nation watches its kids die. Incomprehension in #ChosunIlbo and across #Korea"

Tragic incompetence on board, utter confusion on shore, this nation seems projected 20 years back in time, when the Sampoong Department Store collapsed.

Let's hope more lives will be saved, and lessons learned for the future.
