South Korean riot police battled hundreds of students in Seoul and stormed a university in the southwestern city of Kwangju to disperse thousands there during anti-government demonstrations that were staged around the country. Near Seoul, an 11-year-old girl was seriously injured during a police-student melee. In Kwangju, police invaded the Chosun University campus to halt the burning of anti-government and anti-U.S. effigies. The protests came a year before the 1988 Summer Olympic Games are scheduled to open in Seoul. The government, meanwhile, said that the current wave of labor unrest continues to decline.
