Seoul braces for massive anti-Park protest

Demonstrators call for the resignation of South Korean President Park Geun-Hye in Gwanghwamun square in central Seoul on November 5, 2016Up to one million people were expected to take to the streets of Seoul on Saturday to demand the resignation of scandal-hit President Park Geun-Hye, in one of the largest anti-government protests in decades. On the back of official appeals for calm, police deployed around 25,000 officers for the third instalment in a series of weekly mass demonstrations in the South Korean capital that have left Park fighting for her political life. In an effort to soothe public anger, Park has issued several apologies, reshuffled her top officials and even agreed to relinquish some of her extensive executive powers, but the popular calls for her to step down have been relentless.
