US envoy residence break-in gives mixed feelings

Seven college students belonging to an ultra-left student group have been detained for breaking into the grounds of the residence of the U.S. ambassador in central Seoul, Friday.

According to police and a video clip released by the group, the seven climbed over the wall of Habib House ― used by Ambassador Harry Harris ― using two extension ladders. Under the wall, a dozen other members helped them enter the compound by keeping police officers away from the ladders.

Fortunately, Harris and his wife were not there at the time. Harris, who was attending a reception hosted by President Moon Jae-in at Cheong Wa Dae for diplomatic mission representatives in Seoul, left the reception early upon hearing the news.

The student group is infamous for its pro-North Korean, anti-American activities.........
