• SKorea vows zero tolerance ahead of new anti-govt rally


    SEOUL: South Korea’s Justice Minister issued a fresh warning Friday of zero tolerance towards violence during street protests, ahead of a planned anti-government demonstration in Seoul next week. In a nationally televised address, Kim Hyun-Woong said the government was determined to “eradicate” any public disorder and stressed that violators would “pay the price.” Kim had issued a similar warning before a huge anti-government rally in Seoul on November 14 that drew around 60,000 people and saw numerous clashes between protestors and police who used pepper spray and water cannon to maintain order. Activists have called for a similar demonstration on December 5.
