Her action had "seriously impaired the spirit of. democracy and the rule of law", said constitutional court chief justice Lee Jung-Mi.

A presidential election must be held in 60 days if the impeachment is upheld.

Shortly after Friday's decision was announced, South Korea's defense minister Han Min Koo warned the country's military to be on alert for the possibility of North Korean "strategic or operational" provocations attempting to exploit "unstable situations at home and overseas", according to AP.

An independent investigator claims the former president was an accomplice to Choi in attempting to extract 43bn won (£30.9m) from the technology giant, saying the two friends "shared economic interests", the Korea Herald reports. By law, the country should elect a new leader in two months. The current favorite to win the vote is Moon Jae-In. The nation's acting president is calling for unity and calm as the impeached former President Park Geun-hye packs her bags.

"And also I think the relations between China and South Korea are deteriorating because of the imminent deployment of the THAAD anti-missile system".

Anti-Park protesters gathered outside the Constitutional Court ahead of the Friday ruling.

"We're very glad to see justice being restored in Korea", Taek Yoon Lee '18, President of Princeton for North Korean Human Rights, said.

Officers threw gas at hundreds of Park's supporters as they tried to breach a police blockade in front of the constitutional court in Seoul today.

It finally concluded that the president did not have the "will to uphold the Constitution" because she refused to cooperate with prosecutors even after she promised to faithfully cooperate with fact-finding procedures.

The ruling means Ms Park becomes the first democratically elected president to be removed from office, and could face prosecution over corruption allegations. According to an aide who spoke to reporters outside the court, Park is planning on staying at the presidential residence known as the Blue House on Friday despite her removal from office, but wouldn't be issuing a statement.
