  • Description

    Resigned President Syngman Rhee, 83, paid a last tribute Apr 30 to one of his closest friends, former Vice-President-elect Lee Ki Poong who died in a suicide pact Apr 28.

    Many mourners attended the funeral service at the Army Hospital a mile from the Presidential residence in Seoul where Mr. Lee, his wife and youngest son went into hiding in the April political upheaval.

    Later students were again on the march in Seoul and Pusan demanding a new National Assembly and democratic reforms. Meanwhile acting President Huh Chung promised to hold new elections for President and Vice-President within three months.
