Firebombs Hurled at Korea's Roh

November 23, 1987|Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — Students hurled firebombs at government presidential candidate Roh Tae Woo today, and an opposition leader said Roh will suffer the same fate as Ferdinand E. Marcos if he wins the Dec. 16 elections unfairly.

The gasoline bombs thrown by radical students near Kyongsang University in the southern port city of Masan did not hit any of Roh's 13-car motorcade. The attackers fled and no arrests were made. The attack came as opposition candidate Kim Young Sam told supporters at a campaign rally in Jumchon, 115 miles southeast of Seoul, "If Mr. Roh Tae Woo does not abide by fair rules, he will become another Marcos." Marcos was driven into Hawaiian exile in February, 1986, by a "people's power" uprising.
