Police stand guard outside the Suwon District Court in Ansan on July 28, 2014, during a special two-day session for students who agree to testifyStudent survivors of South Korea's ferry disaster, testifying for the first time Monday in the murder trial of the captain and crew, recalled being repeatedly told to stay put as the ship was sinking. "They kept saying the same thing over and over," one said, describing how she and classmates obeyed the order until the ferry had listed so far that the door to their cabin was above their heads. Another described watching a wave sweep her classmates back inside the sinking boat. The actual trial is taking place in the southern city of Gwangju, but the judges and lawyers decamped to a court in Ansan city, south of Seoul, for a special two-day session with the 17 students who agreed to testify.
