Korean Activists Hurl Firebombs Into U.S. Base

South Koreans hurled firebombs onto a U.S. military base on Monday. They were protesting the acquittal of two American soldiers in the death of two Korean girls.

There were no injuries or damage at the base. One person was arrested.

The soldiers were driving an armored vehicle on a narrow rural road in June when they struck and killed two 13 year-old girls on their way to a birthday party. They were charged with negligent homicide, but cleared at trial.

South Korean activists call the U.S. military trial a sham. About 37,000 American soldiers are based in South Korea.
