Ex-president Chun Doo-hwan dies

Key members of the new military clique, led by Chun Doo-hwan (5th from L, 1st row) and Roh Tae-woo (4th from L, 1st row), who took control of the government, pose for a photo in Seoul following a coup in 1979, in this undated file photo. Chun, a general-turned strongman who seized power through the coup and ruthlessly quelled a pro-democracy civil uprising in the southwestern city of Gwangju the following year, died on Nov. 23, 2021, aides said. He was 90. (Yonhap)
