Korean aide says `sorry' for taking bribes

Seoul - Chang Hak Ro, a former top aide to President Kim Young Sam of South Korea, confessed to taking bribes of about 700m won (pounds 600,000) in return for business favours, and apologised in court for the scandal, which deeply embarrassed Mr Kim ahead of general elections. The money was part of 2.76bn won that Chang said he had accepted from businessmen. He has not been charged with any offence relating to the rest of the money. Reuter
