South Korea’s President has named a new Prime Minister and Finance Minister amid a scandal that threatens to bring down her administration.
Park Geun-hye has come under attack over the actions of her old friend and mentor Choi Soon-sil.
On Monday, Choi was detained by police, accused of influence peddling and interfering in state affairs.
Report says eight banks have also been raided in connection with the scandal.
Critics say Choi uses her closeness to the president to solicit corporate money for foundations she runs, as well as embezzling state funds and directing presidential decisions, despite a lack of office, expertise or security clearance.
