Samsung's Lee undergoes appendix surgery - report

Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong (pictured) underwent surgery for appendicitis in Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, Yonhap reported on Saturday citing people familiar with the matter.

Lee, who was previously sentenced to two and a half years in prison over a bribery case involving former South Korean President Park Geun-hye, reportedly got transferred from Seoul Detention Center to the medical facility to receive surgery on Friday evening.

In February, Korean media reported that the company plans to dismiss Lee as chairman of the Samsung Life Public Welfare Foundation following the sentence.
