[The Hankyoreh, August 4 2008] Anti-U.S. protest arrest

Heo Jae-hyun, a Hankyoreh reporter, is arrested in Myeongdong in central Seoul on August 2.

At the time of his arrest, Heo was in the process of reporting on a recent candlelight protest in which 10,000 people participated, as estimated by the People’s Countermeasure Council against Mad Cow Disease. The demonstration was largely organized as a protest against U.S. President George W. Bush’s upcoming visit to Korea. Heo and 13 other people were arrested.
