South Korean Parliament Votes to Impeach President

South Korea's opposition-dominated parliament passed a bill on to impeach President Roh Moo-hyun for violating election laws.

Roh's powers are suspended until the Constitutional Court rules on the parliamentary vote -- a process that could take up to six months.

Under the constitution, Prime Minister Goh Kun will run the country in the interim.
