South Korea's top court threw impeached President Park Geun Hye out of office yesterday in a ruling that enraged her supporters, two of whom were killed in clashes with police. But the news was cheered by thousands of anti-Park protesters. It was a humiliating end for Ms Park, 65, who took office as the country's first woman president in February 2013 but found her presidency unravelling over a graft scandal, amid rising tensions with North Korea and China.
