June 25, 1989

South Korean riot troops backed by fire trucks raided a university campus before dawn and arrested 21 students accused of organizing violent anti-government protests. About 3,500 police searched two buildings at Hanyang University in eastern Seoul for student leaders, police said. Meanwhile, in the southern provincial capital of Kwangju, news reports said about 400 radical students armed with firebombs and steel bars attacked prosecutors' offices, burning two cars and injuring five police officers. Demonstrators accused the government of concealing facts about the death last month of a student activist.
