CNN: South Korea Parliament Votes to Impeach President

South Korean lawmakers overwhelmingly voted to impeach President Park Geun-hye


HANCOCKS (voice-over): "Protesting outside the gates of powers calling for president Park Geun-hye to be impeached for her alleged role in an ever widening corruption scandal. Sometimes a tense wait for lawmakers to decide her fate. Parliament's vote was convincing. 234 opted for impeachment; just 56 said no, meaning many of Park's own party must have voted against her. The reaction outside was one a delight including from Seoul's mayor, himself a presidential hopeful."
