Oops! Protesters Get Confused, Attack Swiss Tourists
25,000 South Koreans protested against a free trade agreement with the United States in Seoul on Wednesday…
…But, for 3 Swiss tourists, it was not the best day to be mistaken for being American.
Korea Liberator reports:
A Swiss man and two friends were set upon by a mob of angry protestors who apparently mistook them for Americans on Wednesday. The group of 10, who were taking part in a Gwangwhamun rally to protest against an FTA between Korea and the U.S., approached the man and his friends shouting abuse in Korean, most of which he could not understand.
