A member of crew of a South Korean ferry that sank last week has said she and her colleagues were "under command" to abandon ship, the Reuters news agency reports.
The unidentified crew member, speaking briefly to reporters on the way from court back into detention, was speaking behind a surgical mask and wearing a baseball cap with a jacket hood, the agency said.
The Sewol, weighing almost 7,000 tons, sank on a routine trip from the port of Incheon, near Seoul, to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Investigations are focused on human error and mechanical failure.
