South Korea's National Assembly has held the third round of hearings on the corruption scandal involving President Park Geun-hye. 13 figures appeared before the special committee, including medical experts and some of Park's former aides. Wednesday's hearing focused on President Park's alleged inaction when the Sewol ferry capsized and sank off the South Korean coast in April 2014.

Local media has also questioned Park's whereabouts during the so-called "missing seven hours" on the day. Some reports allege Park was receiving placenta injections at the time.
