Ambassador Lippert Holds His Bloody Face After the Attack

Mark Lippert, the US Ambassador to South Korea, has been hospitalized after he was slashed in the face by a “pro-North Korea” activist who demanded a unified Korea.  Ambassador Lippert was attending a lecture in Seoul when the attack occurred.  The activist has been identified as Kim Ki-jong.

According to South Korea intelligence officials, Kim traveled between the two Koreas 6 times from 2006 to 2007 alone.  He once tried to set up a large memorial for Kim Jong-il in downtown Seoul.  Ambassador Lippert is in stable condition, and is expected to make a full recovery.
