A French judge has refused a request to free the daughter of a South Korean tycoon who is believed to be the owner of a ferry that sank on April 16, leaving more than 300 people dead or missing.
The judge said Wednesday that Yoo Somena, who was detained May 27 in Paris and is facing extradition to South Korea, might flee France where she has lived since the beginning of 2013.
