Anti-Park group to leave ruling Saenuri Party

31 lawmakers from South Korea's ruling Saenuri Party who have distanced themselves from President Park Geun-hye, have announced they will leave the party next Tuesday.

On Wednesday, South Korean prosecutors formed a special team which has up to 100 days to investigate the scandal.
