South Korea Parliament Brawl

Thursday, Dec. 18, 2008 – South Korean opposition Democratic Party member uses a sledgehammer and a firehose to tear down the door of a parliamentary committee room barricaded by ruling party legislators in Seoul. In response, the ruling Grand National Party members spray fire extinguishers from the room, to block them at the National Assembly in Seoul. South Korean MPs barricaded themselves into a parliamentary committee room Thursday after opponents smashed down the door, as tempers flared over a bid to ratify a US free trade pact. Opposition parties tried to block a ruling party move to introduce a bill behind closed doors to approve a free trade pact with the United States.
