Last-ditch effort for Korea's rival parties to agree on Sewol-ho bill Updated: 2014-08-19 06:47:51 KST

Our top story this morning
After failing on Monday to agree on the terms of a special bill aimed at investigating the Sewol-ho ferry sinking, Korea's main rival parties only have TODAY to find some common ground, before the current parliamentary session ends.
Floor leaders, Lee Wan-koo [ ] of the ruling Saenuri Party and Park Young-sun [ ] of the opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy will sit down on this Tuesday in a last-ditch effort to reach a compromise.
The rival parties are in deadlock over the terms of the bill, especially disagreeing on how the investigative committee should be formed.
Meanwhile, some family members of the victims of the ferry accident are continuing their hunger strike demanding a full and impartial investigation into the disaster and a meeting with President Park Geun-hye.
