South Korea Ferry Disaster: What's The Likelihood of Finding Survivors?

As rescuers take on the daunting task of finding survivors, family members of the missing passengers are pinning slim hopes on floundering air pockets in the capsized South Korean ferry.

They know the odds aren't in their favor, particularly after the entire ferry went underwater Friday. But they point to one especially miraculous tale of survival for their reason for not giving up.

In May 2013, a tug boat carrying a 12-person crew capsized off the coast of Nigeria. Two divers sent to recover the bodies assumed everyone aboard had died. After all, the boat was about 100 feet down under the Atlantic Ocean.

'Russia Today' Host Discusses Ukraine

With the ongoing developments across the eastern part of Ukraine – reports armed kidnappers have taken two Ukrainian soldiers hostage, protesters seizing a mayor's office, and Ukrainian tanks rolling under Russian flags - it is unclear how much is due to Russian sympathizers, or Russians themselves.

Ukraine crisis: Militants, army face off in east amid soaring tensions

CNN's Chris Cuomo spoke to Anissa Naouai, host of “In the Now,” and Senior Political Correspondent for “Russia Today,” for her perspective:

Cuomo: "There are two battles going on. There’s one on the ground and there’s one in the air, and by that I mean, in the media about what’s going on in the ground. What is your take about who is causing the trouble in Ukraine?"

Naouai: "The media war is rampant… the rule of the game that’s been set up is basically that everything that comes out of Russia is automatically deemed Russian propaganda. Everything that’s coming out of Kiev is automatically taken as fact, and that’s where it becomes really difficult because certainly the foreign ministry here in Moscow and even the Kremlin, some of their statements have been very calm to the point, yes, but they try to base them on facts. Whereas the stuff coming out of Kiev is also really difficult to verify..."
