Former President Laid to Rest

Former South Korean President who jumped to his death last Saturday was laid to rest today after an emotial service in Seoul. Clearly it is an emotional time for South Koreans with some one million people turning up at the funeral, and many more following his cortege from his home town to Seoul.

The emotion has been likened to the emotion at the time of the funeral of Princess Dianna, Princess of Wales.

It is an extraordinary service. And the city of Jeonju is strangely quiet at the moment. I think people are glued to their television screens watching the service.
