Seoul, multiple countries
Former South Korean spy soldiers are blocked by riot policemen at a rally in Seoul.
Former South Korean spy soldiers, who were trained to infiltrate North Korea, are blocked by riot policemen while they try to enter the Japanese embassy at a rally in Seoul February 24, 2005. Dozens of former spy soldiers rallied on Thursday to protest Japanese Ambassador to South Korea Toshiyuki Takano's remark to Dokdo islands. Japan's top diplomat in Seoul claimed on Wednesday that Dokdo islets, referred to as Takeshima in Japan and are situated halfway between two countries in the East Sea, fall under the territory of Japan not South Korea, local media said.
