  • Description

    THIRTY SOUTH KOREAN BUDDHIST MONKS AND NUNS BEGAN A HUNGER-STRIKE IN SEOUL THIS WEEK IN PROTEST AGAINST THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT'S ANTI-BUDDHIST MEASURES.

    THEY STAGED THEIR FAST IN A HOLY TEMPLE, SEATED SILENTLY IN FRONT OF THE ALTAR WITH THEIR EYES AND MOUTHS CLOSED TIGHTLY.

    EARLIER, ABOUT 150 OTHER BUDDHISTS HELD A MOURNING RITE TO PRAY FOR BUDDHIST MONKS WHO DIED IN CLASHES WITH VIETNAMESE TROOPS LAST WEEK.

    (MEANWHILE, SOUTH KOREA'S BUDDHIST YOUTH ASSOCIATION HAS EXPRESSED SUPPORT FOR THE "MARTYRDOM RESISTANCE" OF YOUNG BUDDHISTS IN SOUTH VIETNAM AND CALLED ON THE UNITED STATES TO TAKE DIPLOMATIC ACTION TO SETTLE THE SITUATION THERE.)
