Horrific Moment U.S. Ambassador To South Korea Was Slashed In The Face By knife-Wielding Activist
A horrific image has emerged showing the gaping wound inflicted on the U.S. ambassador to South Korea’s face after a furious activist slashed it open with a knife. Mark Lippert now needs 80 stitches to fix the damage caused by the attack in broad daylight as he attended a breakfast meeting yesterday morning in Seoul.
According to a Korean media report, someone yelled ‘North Korea and South Korea should be unified’ and ‘no to war training!’ before the Ambassador left the Sejong performing-arts centre around 7:40am.
The attacker slashed the ambassador on the right cheek, left wrist and other parts of his body, but State Department says the injuries are non-life-threatening and that he is in stable condition after undergoing minor surgeries at a nearby hospital.
A 55-year-old ‘pro-North Korea activist’ name Kim Ki-jong, believed to be the attacker was however arrested immediately after the attack.
South Korean Prime Minister, Lee Wan-koo, after the attack said, ‘It is regrettable that an incident like this took place.’
