Workers riot in South Korea

SHARE Workers riot in South Korea

Riot police use shields to subdue protesters during a clash in downtown Seoul, South Korea, after an anti-government rally on Thursday demanding the withdrawal of President Kim Dae-jung. Thousands of workers staged a one-day walkout to protest government efforts to arrest union leaders accused of organizing an illegal strike last month. Kim's popularity has fallen to its lowest level since he took office due to growing concerns over the economy.
