Ex-president Chun Doo-hwan dies

Min Jung-ki, a close aide to former President Chun Doo-hwan speaks to reporters in front of Chun's house in Seoul on Nov. 23, 2021, announcing the death of Chun earlier in the day at the age of 90. Chun was a general-turned strongman who seized power through the coup and ruthlessly quelled a pro-democracy civil uprising in the southwestern city of Gwangju in 1980. (Yonhap)
