South Korea's parliament voted on Friday to impeach President Park Geun-hye over a corruption scandal, suspending her powers.

The Constitutional Court will decide whether to uphold the motion and remove Park from office or reject it and reinstate her.

The prime minister will be acting president until the court delivers a ruling.
