South Korean President Park Geun-Hye apologised Tuesday for her government’s failure to prevent a ferry disaster that left some 300 people dead or missing, and the inadequate emergency response, AFP reports.

“I don’t know how to apologise for the failure to prevent this accident, and for the insufficient first response,” Park said in a statement to her cabinet that was broadcast on national television.

“I am sorry to the people and heavy-hearted that many precious lives were lost,” she said.
