Associated Press reports:

Chung Mong-hun, a top executive of South Korea's Hyundai conglomerate who was embroiled in a scandal over a historic 2000 summit between the two Koreas, committed suicide today, police and company officials said.

Chung jumped from his 12th-storey office in the Hyundai headquarters building in central Seoul.
