Protests at Bush S Korea visit


Protestors have scuffled with police at an anti-US demonstration in the South Korean capital, Seoul.

Earlier in the day President George W. Bush was greeted by both anti and pro-US rallies as he arrived for a two-day visit.

Protestors were objecting to the decision to lift a ban on US beef imports and President Bush's stance toward Iran, whilst thousands of people held a prayer service to welcome him.
