South Korean Prime Minister Chung Hong-won has announced his resignation amid criticism of government handling of the sinking of a passenger ferry.

The Sewol ferry with 476 people on board - most of them students and teachers - sank off South Korea on 16 April.

Divers have recovered 183 bodies, but scores are missing presumed drowned.

Furious relatives have repeatedly criticised what they see as the slowness of the recovery operation.
