According to eyewitnesses, an American was robbed here Sunday. But there was some consolation. People of Seoul stopped Americans on the street near the city's sports complex to apologize for the decision that cost boxer Roy Jones of Pensacola, Fla., a gold medal. There were similar reactions from Korean Broadcasting System commentators who criticized as unfair the 3-2 decision by non-Korean judges that Jones, 19, had lost to Korean boxer Park Si Hun in the 156-pound class.

President Clinton and South Korean President Kim Young Sam today proposed four-way talks--involving the United States, China, South Korea and North Korea--aimed at resolving tensions on the Korean peninsula and leading to a lasting peace agreement between the two Koreas. The proposal--which has been discussed with but not accepted by China and North Korea--has as its goal the replacement of the 1953 armistice, which ended the Korean War, with a permanent peace between North and South.

Former dissident Kim Dae Jung claimed a historic victory today in South Korea's presidential election as voters dumped the party that has ruled them for decades for a fiery opposition leader who has promised to extricate them from the country's worst economic crisis since the Korean War. With voter turnout at near-record highs and voters in their 20s and 30s supporting him by huge margins, the 73-year-old Kim carried 40.3% of the vote to 38.
