South Korean Navy officials work on buoys to mark the sunken passenger ferry, The Sewol, in the water off the southern coast near Jindo, South Korea, on Friday, April 18, 2014.

SEOUL, South Korea — Prosecutors on Friday asked a court to issue an arrest warrant for the captain of the South Korean ferry that sank two days ago, leaving hundreds missing and feared dead.

Prosecutors said they have also requested arrest warrants for two other crew members.

The investigation into the ferry disaster has focused on the sharp turn it took just before it started listing and whether a quicker evacuation order by the captain could have saved lives. Investigators are also determining whether the captain abandoned the ship.
