South Korean Students Break Into U.S. Ambassador's Residence

A group of South Korean students broke into the residence of American ambassador Harry Harris on Friday, in a protest against Donald Trumpís campaign to get the Asian nation to pay more for U.S. military support.

Nineteen students, who described themselves as members of a liberal university studentsí group, were detained by police after staging a protest against plans to impose a bigger financial burden for the stationing of U.S. troops in the country, the Yonhap News Agency reported.

The students used a ladder to climb the walls of the ambassadorís residence, next to an old South Korean palace, and urged Harris to leave the country.




The incident happened days before officials from the U.S. and South Korea are due to meet in Honolulu for the next round of talks on sharing defense costs.
