South Korea's President has indeed been impeached:

South Korea's parliament has impeached President Roh Moo-Hyun for endorsing a pro-government party and incompetence ahead of next month's general election.

The opposition parties which dominate the chamber impeached Mr Roh by a vote of 193 to 2, suspending his powers pending a Constitutional Court ruling.

Scuffles broke out before the vote as security guards ended protests by MPs loyal to Mr Roh, dragging them outside.

The vote looked set to spark a period of mounting political uncertainty.
