South Korean police arrested nine Protestant ministers who shouted slogans and attempted to enter the ruling party's office in Chonju, sparking violent protests by Christians, witnesses said. The ministers' spokesman said they were protesting because they believe democracy can be achieved only "after (President) Chun Doo Hwan and his followers resign." After the arrests, about 300 Christians clashed with riot police outside a church in the southern city, the witnesses said. One protester was seriously injured, they said.
