South Korea President Yoon urged young doctors on Tuesday to call off their collective action against the government's medical reform policy and saying that their protest is taking the people's lives and health hostage.

Yoon issued the call during a Cabinet meeting after more than 6,400 trainee doctors submitted their resignations and about 1,600 of them walked off the job to protest the government's plan to increase admissions to medical schools.
