Ex-president Chun Doo-hwan dies

In this file photo dated Aug. 9, 2021, former President Chun Doo-hwan (C), escorted by security guards, leaves a district court in the southwestern city of Gwangju after attending an appellate trial on the charge of libel. Chun, a general-turned strongman who seized power through a 1979 military coup and ruthlessly quelled a pro-democracy civil uprising in the city the following year, died on Nov. 23, 2021, aides said. He was 90. (Yonhap)
