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

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.
