Korea - The bodies of two homeless men were found, in a Seoul train station bathroom, after being beaten to death, allegedly by security guards. Other area homeless quickly rallied together in the station to respond to this latest indignity, and easily surrounded and overwhelmed the 20 police officers there. One hour and 20 minutes later the 100 police reinforcements were unable to disperse the crowd which had swelled to 300 strong. The crowd attack police with garbage cans and furniture until 200 more officers arrived and authorities were able to repel the angry mass.
