South Korean premier pelted with eggs over missile site

15 July 2016, 15:20

Seoul - Angry residents in a rural South Korean town have thrown raw eggs and water bottles at the prime minister to protest a plan to deploy a US missile defence system in their neighbourhood.

South Korea on Wednesday announced that the advanced missile system called Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence or THAAD will be placed in the south-eastern town of Seongju to better cope with North Korean threats. Sangju residents launched protests, saying they fear possible health hazards from the missile system.

Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn travelled to Sangju on Friday to explain the decision but his speech was immediately disrupted by jeers.

Hwang didn't appear to be directly hit by any objects as security guards used umbrellas and bags to protect him. But his suit jacket was tainted by eggs.
