3rd protester dies as South Korea braces for more ralliesĀ  Protesters shout slogans during a rally calling for impeached President Park Geun-hye's arrest in Seoul, South Korea, Friday, March 10, 2017.

South Korean police are bracing for more violence between opponents and supporters of ousted President Park Geun-hye, who was stripped of her powers by the Constitutional Court over a corruption scandal that has plunged the country into a political turmoil.

Three people died and dozens were injured in clashes between police and Park's supporters after the ruling Friday, according to police, which detained seven protesters for questioning.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency is planning on Saturday to deploy nearly 20,000 officers and hundreds of buses to separate the two crowds, whose passionate rallies have divided the streets near the presidential palace in the past several weekends. (dan)
