Belgian ambassador's wife slaps shop worker in Seoul

The Belgian ambassador to South Korea, Peter Lescouhier, has apologised after video emerged showing his wife aggressively confronting an employee at a shop in Seoul.

He said his wife's reaction was "unacceptable".

Xiang Xueqiu appeared to push and slap the employee after she was stopped on an unfounded suspicion of shoplifting.
