Six Korean monks offer to step down over gambling video

Help

Six senior monks in South Korea have offered to step down, after being caught out behaving badly.

A secret video tape has been leaked by a colleague, allegedly showing them holding a private gambling session.

The timing could not have been worse - South Korea is about to celebrate a national holiday for Buddha's birthday.
