SEOUL/INCHEON, South Korea, April 23 (Yonhap) -- Prosecutors raided offices of the ill-fated ferry Sewol's operator and its affiliates, as well as the residence of the firm's owner Wednesday as part of their probe into what caused the country's worst maritime disaster in 20 years.

The investigators raided the Cheonghaejin Marine Co., the operator of the ship Sewol, and the residence of its owner Yoo Byung-eun, a former chief of Semo Marine Co., as well as some 20 offices of its affiliates and religious groups believed to be related to the owner family in Seoul and the city of Incheon.
