Ex-president Chun Doo-hwan dies

Investigators leave the residence of former President Chun Doo-hwan in Seoul on Nov. 23, 2021, after confirming his death. Chun, a general-turned strongman who seized power through a coup and ruthlessly quelled a pro-democracy civil uprising in the southwestern city of Gwangju in 1980, died of chronic ailments at the house earlier in the day at 90.
