Samsung Chief Faces Arrest Again

Special prosecutors have filed an arrest warrant for Samsung leader Lee Jae-yong for a second time for alleged bribery as part of the political scandal in South Korea involving the president.

He faces bribery charges for allegedly having Samsung Electronics pay a close friend of impeached President Park Geun-hye to gain government support in a controversial merger between two of the group's companies.
