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.
“There have been protesters on the streets in smaller numbers throughout Saturday. But the numbers have built up significantly as we approached the official start of the demonstration [in the evening],” Al Jazeera’s Wayne Haye said, reporting from Seoul.
“It seems that hundreds of thousands of people are going to be here by the time this protest comes to an end later.”
