Police sieze student radicals
Tuesday 11 August 1992
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean police, firing tear gas, stormed Chungang University campus yesterday, and detained 71 students, in an attempt to prevent a rally called by radicals seeking early unification with North Korea. Police, who said that among the detainees were a Turkish and a German student, and four student activists, seized materials intended for use in street clashes, including 6,200 fire-bombs and 2,000 metal pipes and clubs.
Scores of students put up strong resistance on top of a campus building, setting fire to a barricade of chairs and desks. Later, dissidents and student radicals said they would push ahead with a four-day 'pan-national' rally, starting tomorrow, involving North Koreans and pro-Pyongyang Koreans living abroad.
