Showing the removal of the body of retired South Korean Lt. Col. Ki Hyun Kim who burned himself to death Wednesday (11 December) in front of the official residence of the country's acting president in Seoul.
At first it was thought that the 45-year-old retired officer might have taken his life as a protest against General Chung Hee Park who will be inaugurated as president on Tuesday (17 December). Officials said later, however, that Lt. Col. Kim had recently suffered business reverses and was jobless. They said he might have killed himself because of his economic troubles.
