ahead this hour, jail time but no death penalty for the captain of that south korean ferry captain. israelis are preparing for more deadly and brazen attacks. and danger in mexico. and an arctic chill is pushing parts of north america into a deep freeze. a deadly ferry accident that sparked outrage in south korea is followed months later by a verdict that is causing a similar reaction. the captain of the ferry has avoided the death penalty and now faces 36 years in prison.
11:01 pm
do we know why he was convicted of negligence and not homicide? >> reporter: for the prosecutors' point of view, what they had to do was prove that there was willful intent to commit murder and clearly, as far as those three judges were concerned, they did not manage to do that. you said the captain has been found not guilty of murder. he has been found gillive abandonment and guilty of negligent. he will serve 36 years in prison. bearing in mind, he is almost 70 years old, at this point he has said during this court case that he knows he will die in prison. he knows that he will not be released before the end of his life. we know there has been one person found guilty of murder, the chief engineer on board the sewol ferry. the reason he was found guilty was because he knew two of his fellow crewmen were injured but
11:02 pm
he did not go help them. at this point, nobody has been found guilty for the deaths of the passengers. more than 300 people, most of them high school students were killed back on april 16th. as you can imagine, the reaction from the family have been very emotional and very strong. many of those families have been attending this court for the past five months, they've been going and watching a very difficult task, according to one member who said they had to sit and listen to the men and women that they believed had killed their children day in and day out. one mother called it outrageous. she said that she wants an appeal. she is asking for the nation's help to make sure that there is this appeal. of course, prosecutors will be the ones to decide whether or not to appeal and that will be the next thing we have to watch out for. >> and of course, after that, not only has there been a court case which has been going on for
11:03 pm
five months but there is still an official investigation which is yet to be done. >> yes. this investigation has unfortunately become very political in this country. there has been really a deadlock in the parliament for many months. only recently has that been lifted. there were hundred of bill put on hold because of the opposition parties and the ruling party and some of the families could not agree about what this investigation should look like. that has been lifted at this point so things are back to normal. certainly it has been difficult going. on top of that as well, another development we saw this tuesday. remember, there are still 91 victim that have not been found. their bodies have yet to be retrieved from the ship and we heard from the ministry of oceans and fisheries faye that underwater search has come to an end. they say that it is simply become too dangerous, because some of the internal compartments of this ferry are
11:04 pm
starting to collapse. it is too dangerous for the divers. bear in mind we're coming to the middle of november as well. it is brutal in the winter in the best of times. the conditions are too hard. we did hear from some of those families still waiting for their loved ones to be retrieved from the ferry. they say they agree with this decision but it is obviously a very painful one for them. >> yeah. this has been a period of national trauma for so many there in south korea. among the biggest economies is on the agenda at apec. they are talking about economic reform and growth. u.s. president barack obama is also scheduled to meet with chain he's president xi jinping one-on-one fairly soon. controversial topics like human rights, freedom and cyber spying will be discuss there'd. now live in beijing with the
11:05 pm
very latest. and barack obama and xi jinping spending a lot of quality time together. what is likely to come from that? >> reporter: well, a lot of face to face time where they can see eye to eye is another matter. but it is a very important series of meetings. as you say, the first one happening today between the leaders of the two biggest economies. then there will be a whole round of meetings at the great hall of the people tomorrow. and those meetings will deal with those tricky issues like human rights and trade pacts. the u.s. administration officials heading the a sblemed press that they'll try to make head way on issues they think they can have cooperation like the fight against isis in the middle east, ebola in west africa, and claim change. all of those issues, they hope they can find common ground. but they will be plenty of others that they won't see eye to eye for sure. >> what is interesting about
11:06 pm
this, normally they put on the silly shirts, everyone smile and sgae waves or at least pre tends to. this time among a number of leaders, there has been a number of chilly relations for everyone to see. >> reporter: well, they are putting on a happy face at times. and are wearing the national dress, or at least a version of it. athletic a photo op yesterday and today. certainly there have been some frosty moments. there has been a brief meeting between president obama and russian president vladimir putin. there might be another one today, in fact. often significant things happen on the sidelines of these big multilateral meetings. there is this awkward moment of president xi jinping meeting up and shaking the hand of prime minister shinzo abe of japan. didn't look like the friendliest of gratings but still very significant because they've had
11:07 pm
very frosty relationship over a disputed island chain for more than two years. after months of japan bashing, perhaps the chinese president didn't want to look too happy when he met up with his counterpart. >> as we look at the gray skies behind you, it seems maybe those herculean efforts to turn off the pollution haven't quite paid off. and the chinese are doing very well what they do very well, trying to block the news of that. >> reporter: behind the camera, you mate not believe it. looking pretty clear and i can taste that it is pretty good today. certainly they pulled off all the stops. they closed schools, they've stopped government services. some hospitals are even having a half day. a national holiday. they hit the kill switch on the chinese economy. but you know, as happens in
