Impeachment vote

Korean President Park Geun-hye faces impeachment vote

Thousands of angry protesters demanding her removal are outside the National Assembly's main gate.

Ms Park is embroiled in a political scandal that has sparked many protests.

At the heart of this scandal is the relationship between Ms Park and a confidante, Choi Soon-sil, accused of using connections to gain influence.

Prosecutors say Ms Park had a "considerable" role in the alleged corruption, which she has denied.

She has also resisted calls to step down, insisting that she would leave the decision up to parliament.
