Agent Orange Korea: S Koreans protest US pollutant dumping

Hundreds of South Koreans have taken to the streets of the capital Seoul to protest against life-threatening pollution caused by the dumping of the chemical Agent Orange by US forces in 1978.

The protesters say that former US servicemen seeking medical support have admitted to dumping the toxic chemicals in South Korea's soil in 1978. The chemicals were the leftovers of those American forces used to kill and maim hundreds of thousands in Vietnam, a Press TV correspondent reported.
