The clock is ticking for Korea's National Assembly to pass a special law aimed at uncovering the root causes of April's deadly ferry disaster.
With just one day left of a regular parliamentary session, lawmakers had hoped to come to an agreement Wednesday on the so-called Sewol-ho ferry law.
The two party leaders from the ruling and opposition parties met in the afternoon, but failed to narrow their differences.
The main sticking point remains who will be allowed to take part in the investigation.
The lack of progress is likely to further infuriate victims' families, who had demanded the lawmakers adopt the law by the day's end.
