Interpol elects S. Korean as president

Interpol has elected Kim Jong-yang of South Korea as its new president, according to the international police body.

Jong-yang, who had been serving as acting president, was elected for a two-year term at the body's annual congress in Dubai on Wednesday, finishing the four-year term of his predecessor who was arrested in China this year.

"Our world is now facing unprecedented changes which present huge challenges to public security and safety," Jong-yang told Interpol's general assembly, according to the agency's Twitter handle.

"To overcome them, we need a clear vision: we need to build a bridge to the future."

Jong-yang, 57, worked in the South Korean police for more than 20 years before retiring in 2015.
