Agent Orange Korea: 'US dumped Agent Orange in S Korea'

An independent California-based research institute says the US army has dumped hundreds of barrels of toxic chemicals, including Agent Orange, in South Korea.

“Hazardous materials and waste, including solvents, petroleum oils and lubricants, pesticides, herbicides and other industrial chemicals have been used and stored onsite for over 40 years,” it said.

The US also used the carcinogenic chemical in Korea, along the de-militarized zone, to defoliate the forests and prevent North Koreans from crossing the border.
