SEOUL - Danish police have arrested the daughter of South Korean President Park Geun-hye's friend, Choi Soon-sil, who is at the center of an influence-peddling scandal that has engulfed Park's government, South Korean broadcaster JTBC reported on Monday.

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.

There was no immediate comment from South Korean authorities about the report of Chung Yoo-ra's arrest.
