Protesters descend on streets of Seoul calling for Park’s removal

There are fresh mass protests in Seoul, South Korea as demonstrators have thronged the streets calling for the sack of embattled President President Park Geun-Hye following a political scandal involving her close friend Choi Soon-sil.

According to reports, the protests have largely been largely peaceful, with many families participating, but there was still a heavy police presence, with buses and trucks blocking access roads to the presidential Blue House- the seat of power.
