S Korea Demands Minister’s Sacking Over Seoul Crush

South Korea’s Parliament has passed a motion calling for the dismissal of the Interior Minister, Lee Sang-Min over the government’s response to the Itaemon Crush.

Mr. Sang-Min has been facing mounting pressure to step down following the incident that killed one hundred and fifty-six people and injured one hundred and fifty-two others on twenty-ninth October.

The opposition-controlled assembly passed the motion earlier today, but President Yoon Suk-Yeol is widely expected to reject calls for his minister’s resignation.

 Meanwhile, the Democratic Party has threatened to impeach the Minister if the President rejects the motion.
