Former South Korean military strongman Chun Doo-hwan, who was in power in the 1979 coup and brutally crushed pro-democracy protests before going to prison for misdeeds in office, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 90.

It was reported that he died in his home. According to the Economic Times, police earlier said Chun suffered a cardiac arrest and emergency officials rushed to his Seoul residence.
