SOUTH KOREA - Jeju: priests and nun arrested for protesting against naval base [AN]


On 7 April, South Korean police detained two priests, a nun and a lay Catholic at the end of a “Mass for peace” against the construction of a new military base in the area. All four were released, but the local church and residents complain that the police action was a “deliberate provocation”. A video of the arrests was posted online.
