The captain of a South Korean ferry that capsized and sank this week has been arrested.

Lee Joon-seok, faces charges including negligence of duty and violation of maritime law, prosecutors and coastguard officials said.

A local court had earlier issued arrest warrants for him and two other crew members on the charges.

Efforts to find the 268 people still missing have been hampered by low visibility and strong currents.
