SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Four more crew members are being detained in the sinking of a South Korean ferry, and prosecutors have 48 hours to decide whether to pursue arrest warrants against them.
Already, the captain and two other crew members have been arrested on suspicion of negligence and abandoning people in need, in last Wednesday's sinking that's left more than 300 people either dead or missing.
As divers continue to search the interior of the submerged vessel, the confirmed death toll is up to 84.
