Police in South Korea fired tear gas and water cannons Saturday as they clashed with anti-government demonstrators who marched through Seoul.
About 70,000 and 130,000 protesters gathered in the capital, calling for the resignation of President Park Geun-hye. They were protesting against her plans to make the labor market more flexible as well as her decision to change school history textbooks.
Student protesters say the new textbook might attempt to whitewash the brutal dictatorship of her father, President Park Chung-hee. It was the largest protest in Seoul in over seven years.
