CAPTION ONLY: STUDENT ATTACK IN S. KOREA

South Korea's new prime minister, Chung Won-shik, with his head covered with flour, is assaulted by students as he attempts to leave the campus of Hankook University of Foreign Studies in Seoul. The incident started when about 200 students began a sit-in outside the room at the university where Chung was teaching a class. When he emerged, students hurled eggs and flour at him. Chung suffered bruises but did not require hospitalization.
