Ousted South Korean leader Park Geun-hye has now left the presidential palace, two days after judges upheld parliament's decision to impeach her.

Ms Park arrived at her home in southern Seoul amid waving supporters.

She has been impeached over her role in a corruption scandal involving close friend, Choi Soon-sil.
In her first words since Friday's ruling, Ms Park said in a statement: "Although it will take time, I believe the truth will certainly come out."

She also apologised to her supporters for "failing to fulfil my duty as president".

Ms Park has now lost her immunity and could face criminal proceedings over accusations she allowed Ms Choi to extort money from companies in return for political favours.
