April 16, 1987|Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — Thousands of students throughout the country chanted "Down with dictatorship!" and fought police today in protest of President Chun Doo Hwan's decision to stop debate on constitutional change.

News reports said the demonstrations involved 13,000 students at 24 universities in Seoul and other cities. Anti-American feeling was strong at Korea University in Seoul, where students flung stones and eggs at Park Bo Hi, a confidant of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, leader of the U.S.-based Unification Church.
