Danish police have arrested the daughter of South Korean President Park Geun Hye's friend, Choi Soon Sil, who is at the centre of an influence-peddling scandal that has engulfed Park's government, South Korean broadcaster JTBC reported on Monday (Jan 2).

South Korean authorities have been seeking the arrest of the daughter, Chung Yoo Ra, for her ties to the scandal, which resulted in an impeachment vote against Park in parliament last month.
