South Korea's President Ousted

South Korea's Constitutional Court removed President Park Geun-hye from office Friday, a ruling that triggered celebrations and protests in Seoul.

Park had already been impeached over a corruption scandal that has plunged the country into political turmoil. Her ouster triggers a snap election this spring.
