Video Captures Brutal Stabbing of South Korean Opposition Leader in the Neck

The opposition leader of South Korea, Lee Jae-myung, was stabbed in the neck during a visit to the southern port city of Busan. The attack resulted in a 1cm long gash, and Lee was airlifted to the Pusan National University Hospital. The assailant, who appeared to be a man in his 50s or 60s, was quickly subdued and arrested. The incident has sparked widespread condemnation, with South Korea’s President Yoon Suk Yeol wishing Lee a speedy recovery. Despite South Korea’s strict gun restrictions, political violence involving other weapons has been a recurrent issue. The attack comes just months before the country’s next parliamentary elections, scheduled for April.
