S. KOREAN STUDENTS CLASH WITH POLICE

Hundreds of radical students, shouting "Yankee go home," clashed with police Monday in Kwangju to protest the reopening of a U.S. cultural center that has been repeatedly attacked, news reports said.

About 500 students hurled rocks and firebombs at riot police as they tried to march into the streets of the southern city after an anti-U.S. rally on the campus of Chosun University, the Yonhap News Agency said.
