The US Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippet was having a breakfast conference at Sejong Art Centre in Seoul when a man attacked him with a knife while shouting anti-war slogan. The US ambassador was preparing a lecture about peace between the North Korea and South Korea when the attack happened.
Police officers immediately arrested the suspect and later on identified as Kim Ki-Jong, a 55 year old man who apparently is the head of a group that advocates peace and reconciliation between the divided Peninsula. Apparently, the group is against the South Korea-US military exercise as this appears to be a drill for war.
According to the US embassy, the ambassador is now in stable condition after a surgery on the face where the attacker slashed him with a knife.
