The World

Radical students attacked a U.S. government cultural center in Kwangju, South Korea, about 180 miles south of Seoul. About 50 attackers, yelling anti-American slogans and wielding sledgehammers and steel pipes, tried to burn down the building, police said. Windows were broken, but there were no reports of injuries. President Roh Tae Woo called for an early settlement of negotiations on U.S. military bases in Seoul, one issue causing friction, and urged against “emotional criticism” of the United States.
