DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 10, 2017, 8:40 AM (IDT)

South Korea’s Constitutional Court decision to remove President Park Geun-hye from office Friday sparked protests in which two of her supporters were killed in clashes with police. Park, the country’s first democratically elected leader, was ousted amid rising tension with North Korea and a corruption scandal that also landed the head of the Samsung conglomerate in jail. A presidential election will be held within 60 days.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
