Ex-president Chun Doo-hwan dies

President Chun Doo-hwan is sworn in as South Korea's new president at his inauguration ceremony in Seoul, in this file photo dated Sept. 1, 1980. 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)
