South Korea's scandal-plagued president, Park Geun-hye has been forced from office. Park was impeached by the country's constitutional court over accusations that she helped a friend win bribes from Samsung and other South Korean conglomerates.
The impeachment follows swiftly on from the arrest of Lee Jae-yong, the de-facto head of Samsung, the country's biggest conglomerate. He is on trial for a string of corruption charges, including bribery and embezzlement, linked to Park's impeachment. He has denied any wrongdoing.
