At least 38 people were left wounded as protesters clashed with police at a demonstration in the South Korean village of Soseong-ri, Thursday, as residents demonstrated against the deployment of the four remaining anti-missile THAAD launchers 217km (135 miles) south of Seoul. Of those injured, 21 have reportedly been admitted to hospital.
Protesters claimed that the deployment of the Terminal... Еще High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) launchers has been disrupting their daily lives with helicopters and other military vehicles. South Korea's defense ministry has deemed the measures necessary due to the perceived threat from North Korea.
The addition of more launchers to South Korea's missile-defence system comes after Pyongyang's latest weapons test, including the detonation of a miniaturised hydrogen bomb on Sunday.
