Park Chung Hee memorial opens


Park Geun-hye, right, interim leader of the ruling Saenuri Party and daughter of the late President Park Chung Hee, tours the exhibition hall dedicated to her father on Feb. 21 after the opening ceremony for the Park Chung Hee Memorial-Library in Sangam-dong, northwestern Seoul. The late president, left, seized power in a military coup in 1961 and ruled the country for 16 years until 1979, when he was assassinated by his top intelligence aide. Park is largely credited with industrializing Korea. [NEWSIS]
