South Korean students demanding constitutional reforms hurled rocks at police and were dispersed with tear gas in the second straight day of unrest on Seoul campuses, witnesses said. Hundreds of police stormed Seoul National University and fired tear gas to disperse about 300 students, and about 500 students at the Jesuits' Sogang University clashed with about 300 rIot police for two hours, student sources said. The students seek direct presidential elections instead of the present electoral college system, which they say favors the ruling party of President Chun Doo Hwan.
