NEWS: French Embassy in Seoul targeted by malicious act

An arrest warrant has been issued against a person of foreign nationality who has put up posters on the walls of the French Embassy in Seoul.

In the week, a first 25-year-old man was arrested for apparently pasting 5 leaflets on the walls of the French embassy in Korea on November 1st at 10:30 pm. The leaflets read “Don’t destroy our religion” and “Those who put the knife on us will be put to death by this knife”. One of them contained a photo of the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, crossed out in red.

A new arrest warrant is expected to be issued against the alleged accomplice, with the investigation being handled by the police and the Seoul West District Court.
