South Korean leader apologises
South Korean President Roh Moo-Hyun has taken responsibility for two months of instability triggered by his impeachment and apologised for corruption scandals involving his aides.

In his first public appearance after a Constitutional Court's ruling on Friday to overturn the impeachment motion against him, the 57-year-old leader blamed his own failings for the political paralysis that followed the 12 March parliamentary vote to remove him from office.

"My beloved people, how much you had to pass through over the past two months. All that stemmed from my failings," Roh said in a speech televised nationwide from the presidential Blue House.

The president made a direct apology for corruption allegations targeting his aides and also for his party's involvement in fundraising abuses surrounding the 2002 presidential elections.
