August 08, 1994| Associated Press

SEOUL — Police raided a publishing house Sunday and seized 15,000 copies of a North Korean autobiography of Kim Il Sung, part of a crackdown in the wake of the communist strongman's death last month.

Police said they were looking for Lee Hee Kun, 33, president of the Kasowon publishing company, on charges of attempting to publish the four-volume autobiography in South Korea.

Publishing materials from North Korea without government permission is illegal in South Korea.
