South Korea Air Chief Quits

South Korea’s air force chief has resigned, taking responsibility for the suicide of a woman sergeant who was sexually harassed by a male colleague. President Moon Jae-in has accepted the resignation of Gen. Lee Seong-yong, making him the shortest serving air chief. He had taken over last September. Moon has also ordered an investigation into how the air force handled the matter. Reports say there is evidence the air force tried to protect the organisation rather than the victim.
