Weeping South Koreans pack streets for Roh funeral

SEOUL (Reuters) - Sobbing South Koreans jammed Seouls streets on Friday for the funeral of former President Roh Moo-hyun, whose suicide last week has turned him from failed leader to lightning rod for criticism of his successor. The death has underscored the deep political divisions in South Koreas young democracy and there were reports of clashes with riot police in the center of the capital, where an estimated 150,000 people had gathered to watch Rohs funeral procession. Downtown Seoul was a sea of yellow, a color associated with Roh, who killed himself after becoming snared in a corruption scandal. Tearful supporters tied thousands of balloons to police barriers along the funeral route and waved placards reading: "Today condolences, tomorrow anger."
