On the morning of April 5, right after the North Korean launch of a missile that traveled over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean, South Korean protesters gathered in central Seoul carrying signs and shouting slogans.

The protesters want the Kim Jung-il regime to face increased sanctions based on its "provocative" launch of a long-range missile which many fear could be used to carry weapons to attack Japan or South Korea, as well as western areas of the United States.
