South Korea’s Constitutional Court has upheld the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye, removing her from office over a graft scandal involving big business that has gripped the country for months.
She becomes South Korea’s first democratically elected leader to be forced from office.
A presidential election will be held in 60 days, according to the constitution.
More to come.
