Scuffles between pro-China and pro-Tibet protesters
Pro and anti-China demonstrators have clashed in South Korea's capital, Seoul, during the latest leg of the Olympic torch's journey to Beijing.
Rights protesters were targeted by Chinese students, who outnumbered their rivals along the 24-km (15-mile) relay route from Olympic Park to City Hall.
The protests had been against China's forced repatriation of North Korean refugees and its crackdown in Tibet.
The clashes came despite the deployment of 8,000 police to ensure calm.
Police struggled to contain thousands of flag-waving China supporters who chanted slogans and threw rocks at demonstrators denouncing the torch relay.
Meanwhile, a second Olympic flame arrived at Mount Everest base camp in Tibet.
Security for the Seoul relay was tight, and included 120 police runners and a helicopter.
South Korean authorities had warned anyone trying to disrupt the relay would be severely punished, and police had to restrain one North Korean defector who tried to set himself on fire to halt the procession.

The torch had arrived in South Korea from Japan, where four people were injured and five men arrested in scuffles.
More than 3,000 police could not stop Japanese nationalists and pro-Tibet activists clashing with pro-Chinese groups in the mountain resort of Nagano on Saturday.
A coalition of human rights groups in South Korea had warned of similar scenes during the relay in central Seoul, and protesters had threatened to stop the Olympic beacon crossing one of the main river bridges in the city.
But they were vastly outnumbered by the thousands of Chinese people who study or work in South Korea who had taken to the streets to welcome the torch.
The US embassy had cautioned its citizens in Seoul to avoid unnecessary travel during the relay, which started shortly after 1400 local time (0600 BST).
In addition to protests against the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the relay is also seen as an opportunity to raise the issue of China's policy of repatriating North Korean defectors.
