South Korea's economic growth in the spotlight
South Korea's economy grew at its slowest pace in nearly three years during the July to September quarter.
Growth was 1.6% during the period, from a year earlier. That is down from 2.3% in the previous quarter.
Compared with the previous three months, the economy expanded by 0.2%.
It means that, with presidential elections in December, the debate over how to re-heat the cooling economy will be uppermost in people's minds.
