SEOUL, South Korea â€” Dozens of activists hurled firebombs into a U.S. military base early Monday, protesting last week's acquittals of two American soldiers involved in the deaths of two Korean teenagers.
The attack on Camp Gray in Seoul, a small warehouse management facility manned mostly by South Korean employees, caused no property damage or injuries, the U.S. military said.
South Korean police said one activist was arrested.
"It's understandable for people to express their views and opinions, but we will not condone violent demonstrations which could cause injuries and damage to facilities," said Lt. Col. Steven Boylan, a military spokesman.
